ABC Wednesday: Landscape

 The landscape around our county building has
changed tremendously since last I had been downtown.  Gone are the enormous concrete embankments that prevented anyone from getting anywhere near the front doors of it.  Now there is a circular drive that even has parking for the disabled.   I suspect that it was done to bring the building up to federal code pertaining to the Americans with Disabilities Act.  It will help us older folks too who find numerous steps to climb an arduous task.  

This clock is also new to the area. 

The  Goddess of Agriculture and the next
two statues were part of the previous building
known as Delaware County Courthouse.  
Thankfully, they survived the demolition of that
beautiful building.
Goddess of Industry

Chief of Delaware Tribe

Built in the 1880s, 
the Delaware County Courthouse 
was demolished in the 1960s.

How sad the building wasn't saved. I think people thought differently about the past then. At least there are a few statues!

Very little remains the same, alas!
