Beautiful image! It still advertises Lucky Strike cigarettes? That seems unusual.

Carver said...

Thanks to everyone for visiting. To answer the question about the water tower advertising Lucky Strike cigarettes, I have a long winded answer for anyone who is interested. The tobacco companies are gone from Durham, NC but the area where they had their plants and warehouses has been reclaimed for mixed use with a water park in the middle, stores, radio station, and companies. But it's called the American Tobacco Campus and they keep the towers and even lucky strike smoke stack as a nod to the the history of the area. It is kind of odd but there is no denying that tobacco was once a big industry in the area. I'm glad big tobacco companies are gone from the area but like what has been done in the area.
