These are still from last week
The other town of my Childhood is Cape Girardeau, MO is river two, of course some times the river get a little close,like at the themis st. flood wall
The flood wall has murals on it:
let's walk up to Main:
and then to Spanish and the common pleas courthouse:
can I make it up the steps?
actually , I think that was the first time I ever walked up the steps
On the backside/Lormier st are the the two Civil War monuments. The Granite one is the Confederate, and the fountain is Union(Missouri was represented in both governments and had troops on both sides
Since I had flat Lion along, I walked another block:
I came back by the original murals, Those on the Southeast Missourian building:
and another Cape Landmark, the N'orleans. Rush Limbaugh III (aka "Radio Rush") once recommend this to some who wanted an "affordable" place to eat (I was forced to listen to his show). which is ok, if your idea of affordable is $20 a person. It's now out of business. The KFVS building (12 stories - "Tallest Building between Saint Louis and Memphis") is in the background
I finally walked down Broadway. This gate was open, I'm standing next to the Old Bucker- Ragsdale Store - where we went to get fancy duds.!
this old bailing was the headquarter of another of my Heroes, Louis Houck:
Google insisted on putting this last even thought it isn't. an omen?
