Architectural cast iron signature

2013-07-22 - 101 & 103 E Main Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Larry Smith, The Big Dawg. The cast iron signature on the plate between Big Dawg Studio, the oldest building on Main Street in Campbellsville, KY (1850-60). The light paint on the left is 101 Main Street, owned by Mike Harris of Columbia. The red brick building is the David Nunnery law building. The first bar in Campbellsvile was at 101 E Main. Jimmy the Greek served the first legal drink of alcohol in Campbellsville. The first newspaper in Taylor County was in the building, as was a Coca-Coca Cola bottling plant. Most of the architecural iron trim in this area of Kentucky carries "G.L. Mesker & Co., Evansville, Ind." and I believe this is from the same firm. - Larry Smith
