My novel "Hometown News" was originally going to be called "Rust Belt." It takes place in a small industrial city with scenes like this. Stricklands Custard Stand, Akron Ohio, best custard ice cream ever!
The rooms are circular. Quaker Oats grain silos turned into a hotel. Now owned by the University of Akron and used as dormitories. Who could ever forget the shops at Quaker Square. Another wonderful landmark gone!
