Uncle Bob's Travels

Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Archive for the month “May, 2013”

Bluefield VA

 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The
sign tells
it all.
 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Maybe this isn’t all that
old, but it sure looked
inviting. We were there
on a 
Sunday, so it
was closed.
 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Thistle Foundry and Machining,
founded in 1898, just
15 years after the N&W
came through here.
 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA This is a Virginia Bridge
and Iron Co. Roanoke VA
1907 pair of
deck girder bridges
right behind
Thistle Foundry.
 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The old Bank of Graham,
cropped to remove
a looming satellite dish.
 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA The former First
National Bank,
right downtown.
 OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Bluestone Bedding,
now a private residence.
I made no effort to
conceal that I mostly
eliminated the current
name on the building
and the license plate of the
truck. The Bluestone River,
by the way, is the local waterway.

Elk River Falls

Elk River Falls NC at 36.198686, -81.969245.  Not too far from Roan Mountain TN.  Lovely place to be on a warm day.
