Taking off on an Air Wisconsin flight from the Battle Creek Regional Airport (back when it had commercial flights)
The Official Radioactive Black Squirrel from HELL - near my brother's first apartment
The secret entrance to Willard Library for after-hours reading
The pathway to pharmacy and cafeterias from HELL - no, just the way to get to the coffee machine at the now-not-even-a-parking-lot location of the Lakeview General Osteopathic Hospital
A little snow, surrounding my first car after college - it tried to kill me several times, but it got good mileage
The downtown unnamed alleyway from HELL - no, just a walk-by of the now-demolished "flat iron" building downtown. It was packed with several floors of historic artifacts that all went down with the wrecking ball.
Now a great restaurant (Clara's On the River), but in 1979 it was still the Station On the Rails for Amtrak
A walking mall in a Michigan downtown, where winter arrives in October and leaves by May. What could possibly go wrong with that business model. This sculptural do-hickey was moved to the Leila Arboretum to the west when the mall returned to a road in the 1990s (the same consultant group recommended the creation of both events), but somewhere along the way, it lost its ball. Ouch.
The "Capri" downtown was one of three adult theatres in 1979 Battle Creek. This one was originally the "Rex" - it featured westerns back then - but went for other varieties of leatherstocking tales.
The Emily Andrus Home - for retired ladies seeking sanctuary and access to a convenient mailbox.
The flat-ion building again, because it had such great texture for 3D.
Fort Custer helped protect the Surreal City from invasion by Augusta.
Mr. DNA wants you to study SCIENCE!
My visiting brother from another pan-dimensional universe.
C. W. Post, looking toward the north in 1979. Now he looks eastward, where a factory bearing his name still makes cereal products.
