Maybe 30 years since I had seen one of these…and it was an AWESOME lunch..!!
There was this small sign with an arrow that said observatory. The one lane poorly paved road actually went across a fairway at a golf course. At the top of a winding road up a hill we found this….
Mount Vernon is a small town north east of Columbus. I came across this train depot that has been preserved, but is used by a business. No historical markers or history……….
Since I am in the business of designing buildings, I should practice more Architectural photography. I need to learn more tools in PaintShop so I can make the sky a little more appealing.
Since we are talking KFC…
The restaurant was originally built in 1956 as Johnny Reb’s Chick, Chuck and Shake The owner, S.R. “Tubby” Davis, erected the 56-foot (17-meter) tall structure over his restaurant in 1963 as a method of advertising. It was designed by Hubert Puckett, a Georgia Tech student of architecture, and fabricated by Atlantic Steel in nearby Atlanta.
Davis later sold it to his brother, and it became a franchise of KFC. The beak and eyes move….!
We use this when we give directions: “Go to the Big Chicken and turn left”
