November Challenge #3

Back in “The Day”


Lots of changes to the downtown area in 90+ years

Either thru fire, demolition, or collapse, several former building sites have opened space for mini-parks

These were pachyderms of interest in the disappearance of the the Corn Stalk

They were exonerated when it was discovered the stalk fell victim to a severe storm — not a stampede

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

    Ah, a photo from back in the day, when brightly-lit Hoopeston was the Paris of Grant Township, Vermilion County, and all of eastern central Illinois! 😉

      You know, actually, that isnt too far from the truth from what I understand — our halcyon days are long gone behind us.

    Sad to see your towns decline, seems to be a world wide phenomena everyone moving to the big cities.
