A candidate for silo hall of fame

So there really isn't a silo hall of fame but if there were, this structure would have to be in it. Since we are working on a silo project here I have built a small collection of silo pictures. The rare silos are the brick and early glazed tile examples. The reason this one is so unusual is not only how good of shape it is in but how the farm's name and year are spelled out in the brick. This picture was taken last summer by one of the friends of the farm, Greg Britton. The family that built the silo still owns the land and farms it up in Scandinavia, Wisconsin.
If anyone out there has other great silo pictures let me know.
