Do you have computer pictures of Franklins? See the bottom of this page.
Our Franklin family members do many things in the winter when we can't care for our Franklins, here is what one member is doing.
I did a project for a photo editing workshop that I am taking, and I used a few of your pics off of the HHFC website. Anyway, if you can use this artwork on the site, you are welcome to it. No credits needed. It is in JPEG format, if you need it as something else, I can do that too. Take care, Chip
Thanks Chip for sharing:
Take care, Chip

The physical limitations and steep elevation of Heritage Hill inspired the construction of Snake Alley in 1894. Three men of german heritage carried out the concept of Snake Alley: Charles Starker, an architect and landscape engineer; William Steyh, the city engineer; and George Kriechbaum, a paving contractor. The Alley originally provided a short cut from Heritage Hill to the business district. Bricks were laid at an angle to allow horses better footing as they descended.
Touted by "Ripley's Believe it or not" as the "crookedest street in the world" Snake Alley consists of five half curves and two quarter curves over a distance of 275 feet. The street is reminiscent of vineyard paths in France and Germany and reflects the city's ethnic heritage.
