Congratulations to Jeff Noble and Jeff Nolin for correctly identifying our last sidewalk photo as Oak Street looking west from 12th Street.  Here’s a new sidewalk photo ready to be identified in the comments.


Also, beware some of the local sites below are running ads for the Louisville Science Center’s Dinosaur exhibit that play a very loud and annoying noise when the page loads.  Such advertisements are, in my opinion, rude and the pages should reconsider showing such invasive advertisements.
