Squint Shot 112810
As this month comes to a close, it is only fitting that it feels like we are flying off into the sunset. In this second sweep around the village, I yearned to have him swoop down to about 500 feet so I could get even more detail, but, alas, Scott, my willing pilot, had to climb to a higher altitude in order to keep us safely on our route. The item that stood out the most for me in this particular picture is of the old hotel on South Grand Avenue. It used to be a wooden structure, burning to the ground in 1901. This brick structure was completed sometime in 1902 and has stood ever since. It has gone through a few name changes and numerous remodelings, but it still remains over a hundred years later.
