Thank you everyone for all of the compliments! I'm familiar with so many of you from years of reading your informative posts and admiring your photography. I'm glad to have shared something of my own for a change.


Murphy de la Sucre - There are quite a few photos of the other cities in this thread but not many of their small skylines per se. I'll make it a point to include them more in a later post.


tdawg - That's awesome! I've only been there once which was also in the 80's. I'll try and secure a visitor pass in the near future and take some photos for this thread.

I grew up in Moline, was just back there visiting the parents. There is some amazing photography in this set, thanks!

I'm going to miss the old I-74 dual suspension bridge, but the new design looks like it will be stunning.

Thank you Aaron! I too will miss the I-74 bridge. Although extra lanes and a pedestrian/bike path on the new one will help me soon forget about it.

Man, there's something just perfect about minor league baseball in a small midwestern city, under a big sky. These are serious Americana.

Love the statue.

LOL. LOL 2. Wut. No. OK.
