Almost Made It At Pollard's Collection

August 12, 2008. Salem, Illinois.

This jet ski is one of the displays at Pollard's Collection. A buddy and I were on a road trip when we accidentally stumbled across this place. I'm not sure if it is still there, but it was definitely worth the stop.


  1. Done it, there is an interesting story behind this one. :)

  2. Frankly from the way some people use these things, I'm not surprised:-) Fun shot, great for the theme!

  3. What in the world? Such a bizarre shot and discovery, Tom Gatermann! I can't stop laughing at whoever thought to do this. :-)

  4. I was going to say, that was some snow but.. Neat shot!

  5. I really enjoyed walking around this place, Charles van Dijk. The setup and displays are quite creative.

  6. Thanks, Ann Kennedy.
    Thank you, Shelly Gunderson.
    It is indeed, Vladimír Šrámek.

  7. ᙅYᙖᙓᖇ ᗪOᙅ™, it's quite an interesting place. Here's a link about it: - Pollard's Collection, Salem, Illinois
