Everyday Matters #29 Architecture
This is the courthouse in our town. We have a wonderful little square-2.5 of the sides still have the original buildings. One whole side is now a parking lot. It seems to me that many of those who have lived here all their lives are the most likely to undervalue the old buildings. They scorn the Mayberry-ness of it, while those of us who came here later in life cherish that same quality. I've got nothing against progress as long as it does not erase the past at the same time. Ok, stepping down from my soapbox now.
