Peavey Park

The guitar player on the right was using some sort of headphone amp, rocking out without being audible. Not making many tips that way. Don’t know, maybe he wasn’t plugged in at all. His pose mastery is impressive, no telling if his riff-fu was as good.

They have lawn bowling on top of the adjacent parking garage.

Foshay Observation Deck

May 20th, 2009

The observation deck goes all the way around, with telescopes at each corner. The cage is sized so that only a sideshow rubber man could climb through.

There’s an old FM transmitter on top of the building.

A trapdoor (locked with a bicycle chain) leads to a ladder for tip top roof access.
