I've taken it upon myself to supply Roadtripper with the missing photos for this area.
It's funny how you can live somewhere all your life and fail to see the beauty. Now I gaze with the eyes of a tourist and find so many interesting things.
During my search for the missing photos, I stumbled upon some fun images and wanted to share them.
This cat has the purrfect life sitting in the window watching all the activity on the streets below. I love the detail in the window arches.
This old building had a nostalgic lamp in the window that called to me.
Then there was this old beer sign. Third Street in La Crosse is famous for the number of taverns to be found.
I can imagine the ballroom was quite swanky in it's heyday. I have to admit that I've passed by this door many times and never even noticed it before. What a difference it makes when you just slow down and explore.
There are some lovely buildings in this old river town, much lovelier than I recall as a young person. I'll share more images later as I discover new things.
Long Live the Queen of Nostalgia
