Standing behind the VFW. Turn 90 degrees to your right and you are looking at the green side of the collapsed building from the last post.

I tell you this in the event that you are planning a trip to Stanley to see these sights for yourself. Think of Wabi Sabi as your concierge blogger.

There’s a street-side front to the VFW that holds a huge patriotic mural, but I was far more interested in the painted blue bricks.

I have still more from Stanley, but I think I’ll hold those for another day.

Question for you: If you are not from Wisconsin, do you know what a Smelt Fry is?

 

Your guess is as good as mine, but the whole thing was surrounded by fresh yellow police tape.

My first thought was a flat roof collapsed under the weight of snow,  but I think there would have been more debris piled in there.

(I checked around online to see if there were any news stories, because I didn’t want to be taking a light approach to someone’s tragedy, but found nothing.)

Darned cheerful paint job, no matter what the back story.  Here’s a shot from the other side of the wall.

I just realized that this is the same green as the siding in yesterday’s post.

Interesting.
