A picture a day from around the Roanoke, VA area.
Fascinating information in the link.. great piece of history!
a piece of american history, for sure!
Oh this is wonderful to view. Someday I hope to visit this place, and I understand after it sat vacant they've redone the building and you can tour it? I must check out your other posts.
Maybe the world's most famous alley?
I loved going back and reading about Ford's Theatre after the fact....I had never really wondered if it was still a theatre, or became a museum, or if it even still existed. Loved that old post, and this one with the really nice photo!
I wonder if Booth ran down this alley in his attempt to escape!
Wow, this is cool! You have actually taken us behind the scenes. I have never seen such a clean and well kept alley. Perhaps the city keeps it that way because it is some kind of landmark?
Booth could hopped aboard the Metro from here. :-)
Very neat to see!
It certainly looks quiet now. Have you read James Swanson's book Manhunt?
Such an historic spot.
Glad they have refurbished the theater I never really knew what happened to it.
Nice alley shot.
Oh, I'm reading a book about Booth! It's a biography called Fortune's Fool.
I enjoyed reading about the theater and this is a great shot of the alley!
Can just see Mr Wilkes Booth flying down here Tanya :)
What a place of history!
Hi! I'm so happy you've stopped by and always enjoy your comments :)
