Farmers’ Warehouse, Norristown

When I photographed this landmark, it was already beginning to collapse. As of 2016, I imagine it must be gone.

It was likely the busiest place in Norristown during the harvest.

Besides its link to Norristown’s agricultural past, the warehouse was used for advertising. Two Coca-Cola murals adorned either side of the building.

And there’s even a local sign, for Dee Horton’s Grocery.
