What I Saw Today (April 23, 2008)

Heart of nature



Wall at Saint Peter's Apartments

This section of wall at Saint Peter's Apartments was once part of a market house which, after that, served as Joe Weisser's warehouse in the 1960s when he owned the IGA store at the "Five Points" (Fourth and Union, and Perry Street). I always remember Joe being slightly hefty until he was shot by two robbers at his store. After being released from the hospital a while later, he was quite a bit thinner.

Deconstruction (at Second Street and 462)

D.K. Lockard installed many of the sidewalks in Columbia back in the day, as evidenced by the numerous plaques around town. The one seen here is near Rotary Park by the Veterans Memorial Bridge.
