Great article about the cafe, and the sign lit up!

Dave, here is a test

This should embed a map ">Hamilton but it isn't working. The address Google supplies to embed doesn't look the same as it usually does. Just FYI.

[Don't use an "a href" tag. Simply copy and paste the code google gives you, as I've done below. - Dave]

Thank you, Dave. It's 6AM the next day and after sleeping I realize I overthought the problem. I wish I could say it's the first time I've done that.

Penney's had the foresight to lock down their website decades before we were blessed with computers.

*Sigh*

Who will be the first commenter to correctly embed a Street View of 21st-century Hamilton?

Mostly intact.

Here's Google Street View of approximately the same location taken in October of 2018. https://goo.gl/maps/4MSJgbY4h8TtTCiU6

Still there

The JC Penney's building is still there.

Passed Gas (station)

Today, the major change is that the gas station has been replaced - not the other was around for once !! - by a building that looks almost as old as this photo.
