    My oldest grandson went through Nashville while travelling with his Dad & family this summer. He was telling me about the “Batman” building – that’s one way to get a child’s attention!

      I am so out of the loop when I saw it I exclaimed “hey, that looks like Gotham Tower!” Randy observed, “uh, yeah, that’s what they call it.” 🙂

  2. Have you ever made a visit to the Tennessee Capitol Building? William Strickland was the architect for the project and die during construction. He is entombed in the building. You can almost see the spot from your photograph. Here is a link to a closeup view…

      I have not gone to the Capitol building. That’s a little freaky that he’s entombed there; perhaps they revered the architect who brought about the building?

      • I think that is the case that the legislature was fond of him. It would be freaky if they were not. And even more so if he was alive when they put him a’ la The Cask of Amontillado !

    Fascinating contrast, Suz. Here in Ireland farmer’s markets tend to be in less built up areas!

      As they have become more popular, they are showing up in large cities. In the smaller areas, like where we live, they are not as near downtown. The original city market was actually in downtown Nashville, built by the WPA as a way to keep the farmers from clogging the square when they came to sell. The new market also featured indoor bathrooms–quite a plus at the time!
