A Stunning View . . . . .

. . . . . and not necessarily a positive one of chimneys in a downtown alley

Tall chimney at the Will-Don building (named for town founder Mr. McFerren’s sons, William and Don)

After feasting your eyes on this impressive view, note the stack on the beauty to the right, and two additional chimneys to the west

Folks from the ghetto come here, take a look around, and go home feeling better

That is a condensing furnace someone has installed to heat part of the 3rd floor of the Will-Don

The upper pipe draws air in, the lower, exhausts the burned gases

Chimney on building immediately south of the Will-Don once the home of the telephone company

Yet another impressive view including 3 more chimneys

The building straight ahead at one time was a Porche dealership — a few years ago the Chicago Porche Club was on a tour and stopped by to observe it!

Excellent material for a calendar don’t you think?   😉

    At least there is a cheerful Christmas decoration on the left side of the last photo

    Rich, I really do think your pictures of downtown Hoopeston are interesting. I like the last one especially. Great vintage look. Make some more! SHooting for the challenge.

    Your chimney photos from the Will-Don are well done.

    We have a few areas in our town that look, um, similar. And the Blazing Saddles clip… One of the many great scenes from that movie.
