While I was looking at this picture, I noticed the parking meters. Can anyone remember when they took the parking meters out downtown? I seem to remember them when I was a kid but don't remember when they took them out. I remember they had a meter maid at the police department so I must be right about them having meters when I was younger.
And what are the round things along the sidewalk? Are they signs or lights or what? There's one in front of the fire hydrant...??

This isn't the "house of ill repute" that everyone keeps talking about is it? I know the name is somewhere in these threads but I don't feel like going back through them all to see if this is the one everyone keeps talking about.

I remember putting both hands on the meter and jumping it, you would go over with the meter between the legs and if you didn't clear the hands in the middle of the jump
it was bad news. Hard to tell what those are infront? I remember portable stop signs at certain intersects.

LOL! Glad you cleared the meter. And sorry for the times you did not.
I thought the one on the corner might be a stop sign but then I saw they went down the sidewalk too...?

That's the first thing I thought of, also.
