You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here’s a quick index to my little corner of Flickr:

Automobile Photographs
: This is a very large collection of images whose primary, but not exclusive, focus is on American automotive classics. Images are organized by decade, by manufacturer, and by topics (such as convertibles, station wagons, muscle cars, etc.)

Central Illinois (except Springfield)
: Central Illinois (except Springfield): Photos relating to the middle section of the "Land of Lincoln" (except for the Capital City of Springfield) may be found in this collection. Every city and town I’ve photographed is contained within its own set, and rural (as in "countryside") photographs are grouped by county.

Springfield, Illinois
: All of my photographs of Springfield and the Abraham Lincoln Sites are in this collection. For the City of Springfield, there are separate sets for the Capitol Complex, Downtown (including the Old State Capitol), Neighborhoods, Parks, Illinois State Fairgrounds (and past State Fairs), and more. Photographs of Lincoln sites include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Tomb, and so on. Also in the Lincoln "All About Abe" (Set) are a few Lincoln sites not located in Springfield.

The Illinois State Fair
: My collection of photographs of the Illinois State Fair. The fair offers something for everyone. Grab a corn dog and lemon shake-up, and come take a look!

Beyond Central Illinois
: Other locales in the United States and Canada including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.

In addition to my location-based sets, here are links to some "topical" collections and sets I’ve put together:

Barbers & Barber Shops
: Traditional barbers and barber shops are on the endangered species list. But there are still plenty to be found if you go looking for them.

Almost Everything Else. Check It Out!!!
: Included topics range from man’s first walk on the moon to small town schools and churches, and from Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers (our favorite breed) to things that are abandoned, neglected, weathered, or rusty.

College Hill is mentioned in Lovecraft’s, "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward," "The Haunter of the Dark," and "The Shunned House."

———————————

H. P. Lovecraft’s maternal ancestral church; where he once tried to play, "Yes, We Have No Bananas" on the church’s organ.

H. P. Lovecraft, in his, "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward," mentions this church twice; including the following sentence: "Then came the exquisite First Baptist Church of 1775, luxurious with its matchless Gibbs steeple, and the Georgian roofs and cupolas hovering by."

———————————

Waterman Street is to the right, and is mentioned in Lovecraft’s, "The Call of Cthulhu," and in his "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward."

——————————–

Benefit Street is to the rear, and plays a major role in Lovecraft’s "The Shunned House," and is mentioned in his "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward".

——————————–

The Fleur-de-Lys Building (1885) at 7 Thomas Street can be seen behind the trees that are in front of the church. This is the home of Henry Anthony Wilcox in Lovecraft’s, "The Call of Cthulhu."

——————————–

The Providence Art Club (Founded 1880 – Moved Here in 1887) at 10-11 Thomas Street can be seen behind the church steeple. Mentioned in Lovecraft’s, "The Call of Cthulhu." H. P. Lovecraft and his aunts Lillian Delora Phillips (Clark) and Annie Emeline Phillips (Gamwell) attended art shows here; and this is where Lillian had canvasses displayed in exhibitions.

Prospect Terrace (1867) at 75 Congdon Street can be seen in the upper left corner of this photo.

The First Church of Christ, Scientist (1913) at 71 Prospect Street (at Meeting Street) can be seen in the upper-right corner of this photo.

And the Providence Washington Insurance Company building (1850) at 20 Washington Place is in the lower left corner of this photo. This was originally built as the What Cheer building in 1850; and was the Gorham Manufacturing Company building before becoming the Providence Washington Insurance Company building. In 2009, it is being used as office space for the Rhode Island School of Design.
