Title Old barn - from Parkway
Date March 28, 1939
Description Image shows an old wooden barn, as seen from the Blue Ridge Parkway. In the foreground there is a stretch of open ground covered with scattered sticks or roots.

There appear to be stone fences in the background and to the left edges of the photograph, sectioning plots of land. A line of trees stands behind the fences, and rolling hills and mountains appear in the distance. Image taken by Robert G. Hall on March 28, 1939. Image taken to the right of VA Route 8, near milepost 165.4 in section 1S of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
