    That anchor is humongous! And I adore that corner ‘depository’ building. There are several in Atlanta like that and they always caught my eye and made me smile.

      Yes, you wonder what exactly it anchored and who had to hoist it. Some of those old building have amazing architecture. Thank you & Cheers =)

    One of the great things about New England and the Mid-Atlantic states is the old architecture. My husband and I took a long drive through Virginia horse and farm country this weekend and I forgot my camera. I sighed at every missed photo opportunity. There are so many 18th century homes and barns, and we stopped at a town with a beautiful historic downtown. Thames Street looks like a charming place! Beautiful photos!

      Thanks…I would definitely recommend making a visit if you decide to visit Rhode Island. I’d like to get over to Block Island at some point with my bicycle and camera. That is also supposed to be very nice. Cheers

    We may be headed to New England this summer. I will be keeping this post bookmarked in my “future travels folder.” Nice shots. Thanks for the share!

      I think that the ones pictured are from the 19th century and there are some homes from the 18th century nearby. This is old here. It is a great atmosphere and fun to see from a bicycle. Cheers
