A "coffee table" book of fine photographs with a few
telling captions -- e.g., "Between technological advances
requirements, a number of barns became obsolete overnight ... Farming is a
business and the cost of paying workers
to put hay bales by hand into a barn
... instead of rolling the hay in plastic and leaving it in the field can mean
the difference ...
between showing a profit and suffering a loss." (p.188) --
and a more or less laboring text in many places.

A pictorial history of barns and other farm
structures in Michigan. Salem(MA):Higginson Book
People interested in barns should have this book as
a ready reference -- both for the contents of
its text and its photographs.
The photographs, which are black and white, include several farm buildings
(etc.) other than
barns that are or once were in Michigan. For some
readers, the fact that the locations of most of the barns etc. are only by
county for the lower peninsula and noted only as in the "Upper Peninsula,
Michigan" will be frustrating. Had more definitive
locations been given,
observers could, for example, see how the buildings have fared between the time
were taken -- also not indicated, but all certainly before
2004 -- and when more recently viewed.
