Haven't seen one of these in a long time.

U S Army Pigeon coop, North

Pretty cool find.

Near Devon av by any chance?

Times sure have changed.
Was it still in use?
If the world went black they would still work. It would make good sense to keep them active in the event of emergencies.

EMP could sure shut things down and make communicating tough.

Make communicating tough is right, look at how many folks never communicate in person, or via hand written word any more. All texts/e-mails. You can even go to the store and never interact with the clerk…

I wonder if technology will eventually ruin peoples ability to interact socially. In some folks, it already has.

Irving & Ridgeway
