This was taken in 1976 or so, when a buddy of mine and I (both of us long-haired hippie types) loaded our cameras up with Tri-X film and went on a shoot in Gate City. I spotted this couple taking some, rather disapproving, note of my taking a picture of them.
Broad Street UMC is replacing their steeple, since it’s been there since 1947 and has begun to let rainwater in. They took the steeple off and put it down between Circle Street and the circle itself. When they did that, the ice cream scoop, vanilla, fell out and is beginning to melt.
