Lights of Columbia for Someday I must return to Lindsey Hill

2010-08-20 - Photo by Joe Hare, CM file photo. 2007-04-30 - Lindsey Hill, Columbia, KY
An unforgettable photo to go with an unforgettable story. After reading Gordon Crump's story, "How I discovered Columbia . . . when Columbus didn't," photographer Joe Hare tried to find the spot where Mr. Crump stood to view the lights of Columbia when he was a student there in 1947. Joe Hare thinks the exact view may not exist now, due to new buildings, power poles, and larger tree. But he's taken a photo which most will agree is a masterpiece to go with Mr. Crump's masterpiece. The emotions one might imagine a post-WWII freshman might experience, seeing a view similar to, if not exactly like, this one, listening to "Now the day is over on the Columbia Baptist Church Chimes."
