There was a furniture upholstery place in that building, I think it moved from the one beside it at one point or vice versa. Anyway, I always wondered why they narrowed the road down at that point. Was a bit of a speed trap at one time.
ha, i was going to come ask you if you knew what the building was, i couldn't find anything on it and you beat me to it! you're my "go to" guy for historical facts!
I'm reminded of the water tower in the town near where I grew up.
Lovely quote and I do like American water towers so much!
I love your blog. I can see everything without ever getting out of my bed :-) This one is sososo familiar.
This is a lovely way to acknowledge all those water towers out there. I have always enjoyed seeing them coming into view on any travels we have had.
I like to look for them when traveling.
It's been ages since I visited Troutville. I think that water tower has been there longer, though. :-)
are there places that don't have water towers? i wonder? they are just a beacon for so many locations, pictures, memories. ( :Happy New Year!!
I like the water tower, but I think that old building is pretty interesting too. Happy New Year to you too Tanya!
We have a water tower in my small town, that is a landmark spot. Always nice to see them!
It looks so much like the one in Strasburg, which you can also see from Route 11.
Your water towers are always interesting to see Tanya, I never spot them here.. mind you I don't go country often :)
Hi! I'm so happy you've stopped by and always enjoy your comments :)
