What's Left

Doing errands, I squeezed a little time in to visit nearby Dawson Park before heading home.

This was at one time the "unofficial town square" for the local African American community. Development and gentrification has really changed the neighborhood. When the Hill Block Building, a cornerstone of the commercial district, was demolished to make way for expansion of the local hospital, the cupola was salvaged and turned into this gazebo.

I'm glad that at least this was saved.

I loved seeing the gazebo in this morning's sunshine.
What an extraordinary gazebo! Wow!

A very interesting story, and the points remind me of lit tapers.
