Illinois - Metropolis


Coming into town from the Interstate, this original KFC bucket made it through 2012 but died when the store closed in the next couple of years.

Exactly what you think.

First Christian Church at Catherine Street.

City National Bank, 5th Street at Ferry Street, where US Route 45 turns near the center of town. Sounds like the appropriately generic name for a bank in a city called "Metro City."

I've been waiting to see WK Er Rive Ul 17 since I passed Massac Theater, and it still hasn't made it up to New Jersey.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's because the town was already named Metropolis. Good thing the courthouse doubles as a fallout shelter, because Superman tends to attract trouble.
