Go Figure

Here's a couple of more from the oldies vault. Both are late 1970's
in downtown Macon.

The first is one of the many remakes of Cherry Street, Macon's main
drag. Over the years the street has been redone for various reasons.
This particular one was called the Cherry Street Prominade. The
street was routed around very large planters made with railroad
cross ties. Traffic weaved around them, was to made it nicer to
walk downtown, I guess. Had a nice look, but is now gone forever.

The second one was done a couple of blocks over on Second and Poplar.
While folks wanted more foot traffic on Cherry Street, some of the
businesses complained about people blocking store entrances
waiting for the bus.

Go figure.
