Today’s Top 5

Streetlight

Is that an arc type streetlamp, left of center? Thanks.

[Yes, it's a carbon arc lamp. - Dave]

Ly Fine Cigar Factory

Just LY? Maybe really fine? Not barely or rarely. Absolutely? That would be a lot of the word falling off the sign. Freakishly?

Busy photo.

What this country needs is a good five cent cigar. Where is the cigar store Indian?

Poling place

It seems so strange to see telephone/power poles now missing from most downtown vistas.

Even the Church has Changed

The top part of the steeple has been removed.

The View Today

Church of the Epiphany still there down the block but as you'd expect, everything else has changed.
