Childhood memories

Before Morris Boulevard or even First North, an aunt and uncle and a couple cousins lived in a small house there on 11E/Main Street just east of downtown on Thompson Creek. It was a favorite stop. I played many a game of baseball there on the oblong diamond the cousins and I created in the side yard, and it was always the stop on Christmas Eve.

Underwater highway

These images come from old US25E between Morristown and Newport, Tennessee, along the French Broad River at a place called Dutch Bottoms. The construction of Douglas Dam flooded the bottoms in the 1940s, and this stretch of the highway went underwater.
