    Didn't see a thread like this anywhere so here goes . . .

    What does mainstreet look like in your town? Or maybe the street you live on? Or just within 5 minutes of your house???

    Please remember to tell us where you are!!!

    I'll go first . . .

    This is mainstreet downtown Cedarburg, WI. USA facing SE. This is approximately 2-3miles from where I live. Not a great picture but you get the idea. I'll have to find some more later.

    Here's Columbiana, AL (about 30 min from the geological center of "Dixie"). A small town fighting hard not to tear itself apart at the seams. One faction wants high class yuppie junk and is willing to use eminent domain to get it. :angry1: Another faction wants nothing to change. :irked: And the rest of us want some sanity!!! :soapbox:

    WOW Liz I had no idea! The street looks so small! I know what you mean about the local politics though (think Alabama's "When It All Goes South"). OK maybe a bad analogy but I am a fan of old fashioned southern hospitality, pride, and tradition. Good to see at least a couple people are finding this thread! Keep'em coming folks!!

    I'll get some more soon too :wink:

    It looked even smaller before the recent "remodeling" of downtown (more yuppie stuff - althougth it did need something done to it). The main reason the town is there is the County Courthouse (the first pic).

    Not a bad analogy. The South is a land of contradictions. I still freak out if company drops by unexpectedly and I can't offer them food! I actually keep quick-cook stuff around (like frozen ham steak that I can quickly cover in brown sugar and pineapple juice and heat in the oven) just in case. Then on to the contradiction part. One of my favorite sayings is that a Southerner will be polite to you up until the point they are ready to shot you (and I don't mean with a camera). :)

    I like your shot of your town - What church is that at the end of the street?

    It's actually a retired Catholic church that is now only used for weddings and funerals. Wierd huh?

    Um, just so you know, I'll be over on Tuesday for some ham :lol:
