Seen around Bessemer

The modern day McCarthiest is still after me but I don't have time to fool with the fool today. It's a busy day, here are some pictures taken around Bessemer Wednesday, and a fun video.

Lots of these buttons around. With the Birmingham elections over (congratulations Johnathan Austin)this runoff for district 56 is all that's left to watch. In the unofficial unscientific Bessemer Opinions poll, Mitchell is winning hands down. Expect a low turnout and a win by Mitchell when the runoff occurs in November.

The building I mentioned the other day is still being torn down, I didn't think it would take this long. I have since learned the history of the building (thanks, you know who you are). The White Hardware Building was built in 1940 and originally housed Hill Grocery. It later housed Western Auto and White’s True Value Hardware.

I also got word that the burned out building I pictured the other day at 20th and 4th will begin to come down in a day or two.

This is the intermodal facility in Bessemer. The one that was developed and built with no controversy.

Bessemer is not all urban and industrial. We have a bit of rurality (?) too. This old grocery sits on the outskirts of town. You probably have seen it. It appears to straddle a creek. Interesting.

This video is great. A fun weekend for gays is coming up. So for fun, watch John, Jeffrey, Adam, Chris, the other Chris and Brian in Asbury Park during Labor Day 2009. Oh, and Whitney. You ladies can enjoy this too, but sorry... Thanks, guys. $ Million Dollar Bill $
