Tyler Downtown Walk – 07/20/2019

It has been 3 years since we did this Year Round Event in Tyler. Last time I did a 10K, this year I’m down to a 5K. Since we’ve done it before, I entertained myself by posing my husband with the Points of Interest.

We parked on the street next to Brady Coffee Shop to begin the walk. 
That wall behind the car was built by the WPA

Just a nice gate and wall.

This wall was probably built by the  WPA also,
but I can’t find anything to verify that.

No info found on this school gym.
