There will probably be a perfectly logical explanation, but a Fifth Third Bank?

That's what grabbed my attention too

Wikipedia:
Quote:
Fifth Third's unusual name is the result of the June 1, 1908 merger of two banks, The Fifth National Bank and The Third National Bank, to become The Fifth Third National Bank of Cincinnati.[4] Because the merger took place during a period when prohibitionist ideas were gaining popularity, it was believed that "Fifth Third" was better than "Third Fifth," which could be construed as a reference to three "fifths" of alcohol.[5] The name went through several changes over the years, until on March 24, 1969, the name was changed to Fifth Third Bank.

Nice pictures. It's good to see your thread back. I've always liked how you show some detail on important buildings, like you did with the courthouse in Findlay.

Thanks guys, I'm happy to hear you are enjoying my little tour!

Findlay, Ohio. October 4th 2010. Part Three





















































Walking up East Main Cross Street (A rather odd name for a street!)









Some sort of rather unattractive monument behind the courthouse.



Probate and Juvenile court building. Looks like a converted church. I guess its one stop shopping for your legal and spiritual needs! How convenient! LOL



The very dated looking plaza beside the courthouse! If alittle money was put into it, this could be something very attractive and a real draw for the downtown!



West Crawford Street



St. Andrews United Methodist Church















Goodbye from Findlay, Ohio. Next stop, Carey.

Circleville Pumpkin Show. Circleville, Ohio. October 20th, 2010

The Circleville Pumpkin Show is an annual festival dedicated to the local agriculture. The festival headed up by the Circleville Pumpkin Show Corporation. Although many states have pumpkin festivals, the largest of these is situated in Circleville, Ohio. The Circleville Pumpkin Show is billed as The Greatest Free Show On Earth.

History

In October 1903, Mayor George Haswell decided to hold a small pumpkin & corn exhibit in front of his store to celebrate the local harvest. This small exhibit featured corn, carved pumpkins and other harvest-themed displays. Because of the prominence of pumpkins in this first exhibit, the name "The Pumpkin Show" was then coined. In the following years local merchants were attracted to improve the size, scope and attendance of the festival. By 1905, the first ride was installed, the carousel was first to be featured in the festival. Soon after, with the success of the shows, an annual festival was organized to be held on the city streets to attract merchants, patrons and improve the quality of the festival.

The Pumpkin Show has been held annually since 1903. Despite it still being held during the influenza outbreaks of 1918-1919, The Pumpkin Show was silenced for one year during World War I and two years during World War II. Aside from this three-year gap, there have been no other recorded occurrences of the Circleville Pumpkin Show being halted - by snow, sleet, or scorching heat.

Traditions

Every year, Lindsey's Bakery creates the "world's largest" pumpkin pie. Visitors can be in line for over an hour to see the pie. At the 100th anniversary Pumpkin Show in 2006, the bakery had to make a much bigger pie compared to previous years as word had it that their world record had been broken for the biggest pie, due to Michigan college students asking about the size and how the pie is made. The pie pan was so large that it was moved outside of the bakery window and into a tent out on the street. The previous record size pie remained in the bakery window and its size doesn't even come close to what was revealed in 2006.

Another long-standing tradition of the Circleville Pumpkin Show is a pageant for Miss Pumpkin Show Queen, a tradition shared by more than a half dozen other pumpkin shows/festivals in various American states.

Several parades are held each day of the show. These parades feature performances by many local high school and middle school bands. The 2006 Pumpkin Show welcomed The Ohio State University Marching Band to play in their parade of bands, which is probably the most popular evening parade of the festival. The Ohio State University Marching Band was also brought back in 2010 for the parade, and a concert, paid for entirely by several private donations.

Lockbourne, Ohio. November 29th, 2010.

Lockbourne is a village in Franklin County, Ohio, United States. The population was 280 at the 2000 census. Lockbourne is nearby Rickenbacker International Airport, and had provided its original name of Lockbourne Air Force Base

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockbourne,_Ohio

Lockbourne, like most small villages in Ohio. Beyong a few churchs and the occasional private residence, it doesn't have any structures of great significants. However, one thing it does have are three Canal Locks from the Ohio and Erie Canal. All three are in reasonably good condition and one is the main attraction at the village park. Here are my photos of the three locks I found.

Lock 30













Park





Now we come to the second lock, which is located on Canal Road, just outside of town. I'm not sure of it's number because I'm not sure whether the number go up or down the further north you go.





Now we come to the final Canal.

Hocking Hills State Park. Part One

Hocking Hills State Park is a non-contiguous state park in the Hocking Hills region of Hocking County, Ohio, United States; it is inside the Hocking State Forest. Within the park are several spectacular[citation needed] features based around rock formations, including Old Man's Cave, a narrow, deep gorge featuring waterfalls; Rockhouse, a cliffed area with a rock shelter; Cantwell Cliffs, a broad gorge at the head of a hollow with a unique stone stairway; and Ash Cave and Cedar Falls, large rock shelters with waterfalls.

There are about 200 campsites in the park, most equipped with electricity. The campground is very close to all of the hiking trails in the area and has flush toilets, shower houses with hot water, vending machines, a camp store, a pool, and other amenities. The area also has many cabins and hotels in this area. The guest lodge lacks lodging but has a restaurant, a snack bar, a pool, and a game room.


The Ash Cave complexThe park is in four separate sections. The largest includes Old Man's Cave and Cedar Falls. Ash Cave, Cantwell Cliffs, and Rockhouse are each separate sections.

Nearby are also other attractions of the Hocking Hills, including Hocking Hills State Forest, Conkles Hollow State Nature Preserve, Lake Logan State Park, and Rockbridge State Nature Preserve. The North Country Trail passes through the complex, where it is coincident with the Buckeye Trail and the American Discovery Trail. The most important segment of this trail in the Hocking Hills is the Grandma Gatewood Trail.

The deep gorges and high cliffs result from the erosion-resistant Blackhand Sandstone, which extends well to the northeast of the Hocking Hills. Several rare plants are known from this area, including plants that are outside their normal range. Canadian yew, bigleaf magnolia, and many others are here.

Many of the locations in Hocking Hills State Park, such as Old Man's Cave, provided inspiration for location names in Jeff Smith's Bone series
