The chain's out dripping its rust-water in Sheboygan but what I notice more is the large wall.
I remember seeing this wall get erected during my last visit to Sheboygan in 2006, I remember it was around the time of the U.S. poisoned spinach ecoli distribution. I took the new construction as a good sign that this style of architecture was coming back into favor for walls. I was happy to see that people had decided that they like this kind of surface treatment again, and that they were going to start using it again.
Tell your friends that you'd like to see more of these kinds of walls get built in your town. This kind of style doesn't need to stay stuck as "the old way" forever. The materials are available for making more of them.
p.s. The thing hanging from the chain is a handkerchief.
In Sheboygan, Wisconsin, on August 24th, 2010, outside "Molly's Cobbler Shop" on the south side of Michigan Avenue, west of North 10th Street.
