Seems Like Yesterday

With permission, I drew this image of Versailles, Kentucky taken in the 1950's. It was a challenge and it took me 700 hours to complete. The unique part of this is that all the buildings are still standing after 135 years. The business are not the same, buildings have be re-purposed and such, but today, you can stand across the street and see the same configuration of buildings. The turret disappeared on the light colored building sometime after 1960 and now is back in 2017, The top triangular facade is now on the Lexington Street side. the building next to the barbershop, part of the Colonial Inn, was reconfigured with a doorway sometime in the late 1950's or early 60's. The small building between the diner and the barbershop was torn down and now is a walkway/ally again. Hope you enjoy viewing....Dave
