Interesting. Thanks, RH.

I think a fuel drum such as this would lay on its side. I know that the ones buried at gas stations are in this position. Also, I recall smaller ones that were also on their side like this at farms in my area.

I wonder if someone tipped it over ;>)

Thank you, Roseheather, for all the thoughts and possibilities! (I'm leaning toward the gas storage drum, since they paint them red.)

My husband also said that the red color of the structure is a clue. They paint gas storage drums red. He said, too, that it looks like they are trying to soften the appearance with the hedge row of sunflowers.

However, I recall seeing a storage unit, shaped like this, near a road, and the structure was open at one end and it held a multitude of items, plus there was a vehicle parked in it as well. That one was just silvery metal color, not painted.

A Quonset hut was corrugated, at least those I am familiar with. Many were used at Michigan State College (now University) to house the incoming married GI's who were going to college on the GI Bill. They were army surplus after the war and inexpensive housing.

The round structure here looks more like a large drum for grain, or liquid. It reminds me of the big gasoline drums that were buried beneath the lanes at gas stations, and from which gas would be pumped out, or in, depending if you were filling a vehicle or refilling the reservoir. My husband says it looks like a big gas tank that would be on a farm from which gas would be available for tractors, combines, etc.

Thank you Shirley and Colin. Colin -- I had to look up "quonset huts" to see what they are. Could be???

I was thinking some kind of quonset hut (army surplus???). I believe you can still buy them :)

Thank you, everyone. Glad you liked this one. I wish I could tell you what that structure or container is in the background. We saw it on one of our rides, and I liked the look, snapped the picture, and moved on. Didn't take time to look around.

Like the pines in the background.
