I do like it, - the picture has a kind of "old style" and it is perfect in B&W!

These are the kinds of streets I remember from my childhood, and I agree with Hans that it is perfection in black and white. B/W was the way of those days. I like the idea how the town got its name. It makes me wonder how many cities in this county were named in a similar manner. Great shot. genie
