What a terrific pictorial projedt!!! It really sparked a lot of memories for me. I wish there had been one of the "Pit" (Southern Pit BBQ) where Cottin's Hardware is now located. Sucked down a lot of suds in that establishment.

Love the project! I would also like to see before/now pics side by side. The picture of the Crossing took a chunk out of my heart, btw! What was really strange about it, was there was no one in the picture. Surely, there are pics of people in some pictures of the whole building out there. I practically lived there. Maybe, there are some on the Crossing Facebook page.

Phyllis Copt -- I think she was my 7th grade geography teacher.

These are really well done -- loved seeing all the photos.

Allison, those were great memories of your Dad, and the others. Thanks. I sure do miss him.

Agree with all the 'this is awesome' comments. May be the coolest thing the Journal World has ever done. While they're all good or really good, Mike Yoder's Ice Storm on a Hot July day combo takes the cake at the moment!!

Might have to get the spousal unit to go through those 20 lbs of pics and see what we find. Might be embarrassing to old hippies who still live around here!!!

The one with Dennis in it is awesome. Makes me a little homesick.

This is a cool project. I think it would help my perspective if there was also a current photo of the location - a now and then.
