About Town 9/29/19

This week's photos of Columbia

Plumb tuckered out

Taking another look on the first block of North 2nd

 Does this warrant a HAZMAT call?

 Breakfast biscuit "online"


 Down at the culvert not much has changed.

 Yep, the scale's still there.

A touch of paradise

 The pole's still there, but the sign is missing.

Here's the sign that was. It disappeared sometime around 2012. It used to greet visitors coming into Columbia from Washington Boro. There's a similar sign currently on the Route 462 side of Locust Street Park.

 Frontier justice

 The Plane Street "Tunnel"

 Is there an afterlife?

 That wind sock is still there.

 Here's a close-up.

 There's obviously no room here.

 Two different painting schemes of similar houses on South 4th

 There's a sheriff in town, though not necessarily a new one.

  There's a ghost hanging around looking for Halloween.

 A dragonfly that's probably on its last legs (or wings)

 Missing light at River Park

 More campaign signs

 No comment

 Working after hours

 Overnight sensation

 The street sweeper was here.

 Big eagle at BB&T Bank

 Little doves meeting for breakfast

 Low visibility signage - not good for sales

 Another sign down!
A witness reported seeing a Penske truck run it over minutes before this photo was taken.

 LASA checking our pipes

 Things are not always what they seem, as in this photo.

 Seagulls and ripples

 Thirsty Puppy Pit Stop at Kristen's Katering, 301 Cherry Street

 Cats hate water except when they're thirsty.

 Halloween's comin'

 Graphic Image at the former Keystone Firehouse

 Mom turkey herding her flock into the weeds.

 There she is.

 Mighty big star

 Cell towers lurking in the fog

 That old car at Rivertowne Antiques is finally for sale. It probably qualifies as an antique.

 Fog afar

 Morning mist

 At the Wright's Ferry Bridge

 Morning light

 Mist on the river

 This is apparently the logo of a bichon frise breeder in Hanover, PA.

 Floyd Landis is moving a CBD oil processing facility there, as Columbia Spy reported HERE.

 Behind bars

 Look who showed up.

Newly installed speed bumps on Riverfront Drive

 A Kindness Rock

 Says so on the back

 Fire truck for sale. The iced tea might not be included.

And last but not least, photos from two Columbia Spy readers:

The four photos below show an interesting way to repair a curb - part concrete, part blacktop:

 Meanwhile, what's up with Park Avenue? (See below.)


Another reader sent the following photos of more roadwork on the 200 block of Union, where UGI is installing gas lines:
