That looks like a fun place. Good post!

(I scribbled the name down to pass on to Frau Eye. I think she's planning a ride through a part of Wisconsin next Spring.)

We have a place here that someone has done crazy junkyard scuptures too but nothing so elaborate. And not so many. I am curious as to what the original function of the trumpet like things was. I'm guessing a horn but from what? Seems like just too many to come from a single source like a train or tugboat horn.

If that's what I think the thing in the middle is, a Contrasbass Saxaphone, I can't believe ANYONE would do that to such a rare instrument. That's just wrong. Those things are very rare. Maybe it's a Bass or Baritone Sax. It's still just wrong. Nevermind. It's a Bass Sax. Not nearly as rare. Made me look though.

This was featured on an episode of "American Pickers" on the History Channel, including interview with the artist.
