Old Street Markers
This is a photo of a bygone street marking system in downtown Baldwyn. I guess I never really noticed it back in my youth, but these had been there a very long time. This particular spot is in front of the old Farmers and Merchants bank, now the Baldwyn News building. The location is also in the lower right hand corner of the blog header photo.
Main street has been renovated to modern standards, including handicapped ramps at corners, unlike the rough piled-up concrete in the above photo. These sidewalks were laid in the 1930's, I believe.
