Take A Cruise Through Old Town Back In 1973
This video came cruising through my news feed last night, and I thought it was super cool. It's amazing how much hasn't really changed in Old Town. And I don't mean that in a bad way. Sure, these days there are maybe a few more empty store fronts than folks would like, but most of the buildings you see in this video are still there. So as you're watching this, most of it will look really familiar.
I also thought it was particularly poignant, in that news just came out in the last couple days about a Japanese paper company that is going to fire up the Old Town paper once again. It would be a big boost to the local economy, as it's reported that it will be creating as many as 100 new jobs.
In the meantime though, why not take a stroll down memory lane, and check out the Old Town you may have grown up in, or worked in, or had family in? Like I said, for locals especially, it will all look very familiar. And if you're anything like me at all, re-living your own past is one of the funnest things you can do as an adult. Enjoy!
