Pegasus over El Dorado
I had plotted out New Deal Administration buildings from Texarkana to the Mississippi River as we had decided to take the Delta route home. We left Mount Pleasant, Texas this morning with a--pardon the pun--pleasant surprise of finding out the golf course was a WPA project, designed by Perry Maxwell, who designed a number of WPA golf courses. (I know, Rand said the same thing--the WPA built golf courses and country clubs?) I will have to do some research on that to further comment, but the MPCC website credits Maxwell, as does http://pasturegolf.com/archive/wpa_courses.htm.
Wolf Sign Company from Louisiana. The story of the Pegasus sign can be read here.
We had a great week in Texas, with lots of opportunities to be with family and friends, but as always, it is good--really good--to be back in Lottabusha County.
