Soldiers' Monument in Winter

This is the Brockport Soldiers' Monument, on the east side of Owens road near the railroad tracks, back in the woods a bit. This was taken in December of 1985, before the rest of the top was blown off in the Labor day storm of 1998. There are no stairs left now... when I was young I remember looking up inside and seeing every 3 or 4th stair intact, but it was not stable enough to climb. My grandfather told me when he was young, he could climb to the top and get a great view of the lake! (click for larger view)
