This week's photos from around Columbia (with a few from elsewhere) . . .
(Click/tap on photos for larger, clearer images.)

Captain America about to go off duty

 Borough workers repaired the bollard that was hit by a car about a week ago at 5th & Chestnut.

Here it is.

 Here's a tractor-trailer going down Walnut Street.
(Now, what was that about that Route 441 bypass...?)

 Seen at the bottom entrance to the high school hill

 What were these tools at Columbia Crossing used for?

An older edition of The Columbia Spy might give a clue.

 More and more missing bricks, courtesy of local vandals

 On the way up the hill

 Instruments of destruction (or construction?) parked around the corner on the 400 block of Avenue H

 The machines are being used to dig trenches to lay these pipes.

 Here are a few more.

 Men at work in the 400 block of Avenue H

Diggin' it

 Young plastic squirrel, who may someday be an adult plastic squirrel

One down, one to go

 This cat looks to be a refugee from the movie Dune and has obviously ingested too much of "the spice."

 Legs cost extra

 A sign of spring

 Open soon on North 4th?

 Signs of life at the 4th Street firehouse?

 Just the right size boxer shorts and gloves

 All tangled up

 Leaning sign

 Here's another one.

 Birds at breakfast

 Chemtrails! The government's trying to kill us all.
(Just kidding, sort of.)

 Open flames

 Just right for lighting your Benson & Hedges 100, which this worker appears to have done. (All right, it might be a pen.)

Flame on! 
Very hot. Do not touch.

 Sometimes a bicycle is just a yard decoration.

 Post-modern paint job

 The Returned Soldier has a greenish bruise along his left eyebrow.

 His sleeve and helmet aren't faring too well either.

 Mossy pylons

 Sentinel seagull

 Install America fans

 Dragonflies lingering on the outside wall

 Out for a walk

 Even more sacks of stone in the yard at Living Stones

 Underneath Columbia Crossing

 A good place to sort of hide things away

Bucket truck with a dressing room in the back?

 Just wow!
Someone needs to call for a dumpster.

 Mostly mayhem

 Catnap at the Columbia Animal Shelter

 Airbnb at 1102 Locust

"Bicycle, bicycle, bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle, bicycle, bicycle"

A worker at 429 Chestnut Street invited Columbia Spy in to see the renovations being done there.

 Workers have been busy for the past five months giving the place a complete makeover. 

 The property will reportedly be on the market in three to four weeks.

 The house features a lot of chestnut wood, appropriately enough on Chestnut Street.

 There are also several stained glass windows.

Interested? Here's the contact info.

Keystone and exterior wall medallion at 431 Chestnut

 In Marietta

 A historical marker at the Marietta section of the Northwest Lancaster County River Trail offers info about the area.

 Chiques Creek flows into the Susquehanna under this bridge.

 This sign indicates that it's thataway.

 Looking roughly southeast

(Route 441 can be seen in the upper right.)
