I love everything about this 1953 home from the great roofline on the single story section to the modular look of the two story section. The house is situated on a large corner lot which afforded lots of opportunities to view all its interesting shapes from various perspectives.

US 1 - This cute little motel is located near Hilliard. I was compelled to make a u-turn and go back to snap a couple of pictures. I was drawn in by what was probably once a much cooler sign. I like the trio of poles holding up the right side and the interesting shape it has. The motel is your standard u-shaped affair. It probably had a pool in the middle but I can't remember if that still existed or if it had been filled in as they have been at many old motels. On the motel itself I like the stacked (as opposed to staggered) block construction and the banded stonework framing the windows.

Well, I've been back from vacation in Florida for almost a week and just realized that my pre-scheduled post ran out on the 15th. Luckily I have tons of new pictures to post as I made a concentrated effort to get out on the less travelled roads and visit some new places on this trip. Not that I needed any pictures, I have tons that have not yet been posted. There will certainly be a lot more Florida posts coming up though, with all this new material.

100 Alden Avenue NW - I love it when a simple wrong turn winds up revealing wonderful things as was the case with this 1960 building. I love the roof line and the wonderful wooded ravine lot in which the building sits.

1829 East Long Street - Formerly the Franklin Park Pharmacy, this 1962 structure was sitting and waiting for someone to love it when I shot these last May.
A bit overgrown, the building sits on an inclined corner lot with steps leading up to the front door from two different streets.
Lots of stone and glass.
Stacked block wall.
Love this sconce light that was over the basement door.

923 South James Road - Super Duper shopping center.
907 West Broad Street - Florentine Restaurant.
4910 North High Street - Tee Jaye's Country Place Restaurant. I lived in Columbus for five years and drove past this sign at night a thousand times but never got a picture of it glowing with the arrow in motion.
4182 East Main Street - Homestead Motel.
