- Jan 17, 2009Thanks guys, I appreciate all the replies.
The more I thought about this structure I began to realize I've only
ever seen B&W photos of it. Which leads to my next question.
The lower portion of the silos (approx. 15 to 20 feet??? - I'm just
guessing here) appear to be painted. Unfortunately I have no idea what
color paint was used. Any insights?
