Urban Landscape in Lexington North Carolina



(click on photograph for full size image)

Urban landscape downtown in Lexington North Carolina.  North State Street, sidewalk.  The entrance, drive-up window to the local utility payment office (to the left of the frame of the photograph).  A telephone booth, calling your attention in red.  Winter scorched grass and ill cared for shrubbery.  A florist, “Love Blossoms,” housed in a modernist office building of concrete and wooden beams and thin ribbon windows.  The spage-age globe streetlight a survivor of the 1960’s in which the modernist building was erected.  The space race to the moon come to the piedmont South, a furniture-making hub.  In the background a house; built in the 1930’s, not far enough from downtown.  Now engulfed in the commercial district.  An attorney’s office maybe, as this is the courthouse town.
