"HOPE"

Michelle Alton 2/8/2010 1:44:10 AM

The "Clinton" museum in Hope overflows with Clinton family photographs. The volunteer Guide was eager to show me the displays in the Ladies' Restroom. #1236224

I would have loved to see this beauty when the trains were running. I love trains, what a pity they slipped away. #8364840

Interesting tour Michelle, you were busy for a week weren't you. Interesting how a little unknown town becomes a crossroad of interest after someone who lived there became famous. #8365506

Monnie Ryan 2/8/2010 6:21:07 AM

You can't imagine all the one-liners that come to mind seeing these images (especially in the ladies room), Michelle! That said, it's sure a cool place and I love the exterior photo -- well composed and detailed! #8365660

Nice capture, details and effects! Love that sky too! I see what you mean about Hillary watching you. I see that they did have tp and not corn cobs. #8366452

Steve M. Harrington 2/8/2010 12:04:16 PM

A fine image and interesting details, Michelle. I get the impression that hope is mainly a clean washroom. That was certainly the case in many of the places I traveled to. :)

I love old depots!!!
Your POV is excellent on this
one Michelle!! I must admit..
I am laughing at some of the comments

would not have needed the tour guide to
find the Ladies room....and as for the
images within....well, I agree with MeL...Not sure I coulda followed through with what I went in there for!!
HA!!!
I wonder who's photo is in the men's room?? Double HA!

Great work Michelle!!!
