So imagine my shock and surprise when I returned to Mansfield and found this:
Here are some more pictures of Mansfield dressed up as 1935 circa Marshall. I kept wondering why I hadn't seen any of this my first time in Mansfield(!):
a gas lamp on the courthouse grounds
"Sheriff Harrison County" - Marshall is Harrison County Seat
This building was there in 2006,
but not with this on its side(!):
"How could I have not noticed this the
first time I was here??" I kept thinking...
Based on Smithville, I bet this'll be much worse for the wear in a year or two.
Finally, here are some pictures someone else took as the filming of The Great Debaters was being done in July 2007.
