Ambition's Peak

<- Click here

The big reach up from
A small town’s dreams
Ended at the peak
Of it’s tallest

Back then.

Do you hear talk of RECOVERY? How nations and states and cities and towns will rebound? Have you ever looked around to wonder how many never recovered the roar of the 1920s? Has Argentina? Has Moscow? Has Cincinnati? How much ambition and hope expired eleven, twelve, or thirteen stories up… up there at the roofline of a town’s tallest building? When the Roaring Twenties went… mute.

The Griest Building, Lancaster, PA.
