The artwork stands 6′ tall. While I was there, the Sounder came by, so I took that photo too 🙂


Cushman Substation

The Cushman Substation at 3717 South 19th Street in was built in 1926 and has a Greek Revival with Doric columns architectural style. Apparently it was noisy in the beginning because the newspaper stated “Engineers succeed in silencing noise at city
substation”. The station served as terminus for the power generated at Cushman Lake hydroelectric power project.




Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, in Wales has one of the longest place names in the world. The village/train station originally had a shorter name, but in the 1800s they were renamed in an effort to increase tourism. The picture below shows the gift store.
