These old Mail Pouch Tobacco barns remind me so much of my Grandfather. In Ohio where I'm from, the landscape used to be dotted with these. But as the barns fall in disrepair and the popularity of chewing tobacco falls to almost non-existent, this Americana is not being replaced. All we have to rely on are family memories of grandfather's chewing and little granddaughter's getting in to the pouch and taking a "chaw"!
