Pieces of the Past April 27, 2008

Posted by cbuchanan in Uncategorized.

I was searching for old photos of Birmingham online the other day and stumbled across an amazing resource: Alabama Mosaic. It’s a repository of images, articles, etc. from libraries, archives, and museums all over the state. Type in “motels” like I did, and you can find a postcard featuring the *original* sign for Tuscaloosa’s Moon Winx Lodge, a newspaper article about the revitalization plan for Birmingham’s Fair Park (from when Richard Arrington was mayor), and pages of other goodies. Definitely a site to bookmark–and take a moment to enjoy the slideshow of images on the home page. You’ll want to see the people dressed up like bunches of asparagus. :)

I’ve got new art pieces going to Naked Art sometime this week, including a print that been requested a few times–the Redmont Hotel. Stop by and see my new lion print, too. (I’ll let you know if I post them both on Flickr.) There are at least two places in downtown Birmingham where you can find lions in the architecture. Do you know where they are?
