You don’t see many of these nowadays. This old telephone booth stands outside “Dolly’s” restaurant. In the old days it would have stood outside “Guinan’s”. It does, in fact, get a mention in Little Chapel on the River: A Pub, a Town and the Search for What Matters Most, which focuses on “Guinan’s” and the interesting case of characters who frequented it.
I don’t think anyone will be using it anytime soon.
The figure to the top left is standing on the platform of the present Garrison Metro-North station.

I came across this image painted on the wall of a building in Beacon, NY. It reminded me of something by the famous Belgium surrealist painter René Magritte whose paintings often featured bowler hats.

Seen in the restrooms at a restaurant in Fishkill, NY. Sorry I just could’t resist.

As I walked down Route 301 I noticed this lonely stone by the side of the road. It’s very easy to miss.
Then I saw that it had a plaque on it. The inscription reads: “Thomas Davenport. 1682-1759. Pioneer settler, built his log house and reared his twelve children here about 1729”.

Another picture to demonstrate that we don’t just have roses in our garden.
