CHUCK BERRY HONORED AGAIN
As an aside, you'll note the photo credit under the picture of the statue is to Katherine Bish. When we first lived in Hampton Park, on Clayton Road, the doorbell rang one day and I answered to find a darling young gal with a camera in hand. She was a recent college grad, her husband had taken a job here in town, they were from Illinois I believe, and she was trying to build a portfolio to get into the photog biz. Having a number of photographers in my family, I was inclined to let her in to photo our house. She had been driving around looking for things to photograph and just wanted to take pix of a big house, which she did. We have corresponded since, and I have watched her then-fledgling career with interest. I see her layouts frequently in the local magazines and newspapers. Obviously she was a go-getter, which is what impressed me when she rang the bell making that 'cold call' so bravely.
