Clarkson Town Hall

This is the Clarkson Town Hall just north of Brockport, on Lake Rd. at the corner or Ridge Rd. According to the sign, it was built in 1899. I wonder if it was a house at one time, or built as the town hall. I have also wondered why if I officially reside in Clarkson, and there is a Clarkson Post Office, I still get my mail through the Brockport post office. Taken in October of 1999.

Spencerport Lift Bridge on a Winter Night

Since it was ~85 here today, and is supposed to be ~92 tomorrow, I thought another cool winter image would be nice.... This is the Spencerport Main St. Lift Bridge, back in March of 1988. Today, with out the snow and 20 years later, I don't think this view would look much different... (click for larger view)
