the town of Metropolis

Another missive and more photos from John in the C of A. (I don't know what state Metropolis is in - Illinois?):

Attached photos of the town of Metropolis on the way to Coffeen. This is where I met the old man that reminded me of Tucker. He had plans to build a Superman theme park. They are having a superman festival in June and are going to try and set the McGuiness book of records for the most superman in costume in one

Two pictures are full resolution, You have to blow them up to get a the right detail. Note slot machines in the gas station store and superman on bathroom door.

  1. John Updike wrote that the middle is where all the extremes meet (or something close to that). This Metropolis is passing strange.
