littleone was first to identify the subject this week. See the end of this post for the answer.

Even though I made my way back to town for the subject this week, I suspect you'll have trouble identifying the location this week...but I've been wrong before.

The subject isn't visible from the street and I have to confess I don't know much about it except that it must have a bit of a story behind it. I certainly never expected to find what I did, where I did.

When it's been identified, or if you identify it, you're welcome--encouraged even-- to provide any details about the history (and by history, I'm talking maybe 30 years)

This is sort of a contest, I had some rules around here somewhere... Follow the links at the top of this post to look at some previous subject, comments, guesses, etc. You should get the idea.

The subject this week was the "courtyard" of the round apartment complex pm Four Wheel Drive at 29th Terrace. Formerly the "Round Town Mall"??

"Well", this may require some "deep" thinking.I may need to "bail" on this one. Do you want a "full" description, or will the "watered down" version suffice? Your "thirst" for knowledge surely "irrigates" your soul. . ..

Will post complete photo tonight. West of Iowa. South of 23rd.

is that those round apartments over on four wheel drive?

Okay. The wishing well (or whatever it is) is on the grass island surrounded by the round buildings on about the 2900 block of Four Wheel Drive Just north of the former Honda dealership. Final answer.

I think it used to be called Round Town Mall. Don't recall ever going into any business or what business' were even there.

That is my recollection, too. Anyone know what shops used to be in there? Anyone ever shop there? Or know when it was converted to apartments?
