the Gildzen bricks

years ago Akron was undergoing a downtown renovation. a gimmick to make money was selling bricks on which donors cd put names.  I purchasd one for Mom because she was born not far from there.

for decades Dad workd at General Industries.  not long after he died the buildings burnd down.  I was able to salvage this brick. I photographd it on my brick in Cathedral Park in dowtown Santa Fe which Nancy Cope gave me as a gift.

last month Tom Mahl took this picture of me leaving a penny on Dad's brick in the war memorial in Ely Park which is at the center of downtown Elyria.
