The Largest Quarter in America


I went wandering through America yesterday, down the Lincoln Highway, and discovered what must surely be the largest quarter dollar in the country.

Plus a charming commercial elephant.  (We drove past the unrelated Elephant Museum but the traffic was too heavy to stop and turn around.)

And an ice cream stand in the shape of a sundae.

And a recreation of historic-but-ramshackle Fort Loudon.

And an abandoned Boy Scout-built wickiup.

And a statue of a flivver.

Among much else.  When you travel via Interstate, you tend to lose sight of what a profoundly odd country America is.

Above:  The Almighty Dollar couldn't be bothered to crush me.  So the job was sub-let.
