Hi! I hadn’t done a TBT article in a couple of weeks, so I thought I would get back into the habit with a puzzle that stumped quite a few people on Facebook a couple of weeks ago.
On the page “Charlotte, NC the Past and Present” frequent contributor James Allen Peacock posted this picture and asked the page members where they thought this was. He did give the hint that this was one of the first paved streets in the Myers Park Neighborhood:
Well, the answers ranged from Queens and Radcliff near what is now Queens University of Charlotte to somewhere near the future Freedom Park. The answer was, Queens Road at Edgefield Road across from Edgefield Park. Well, Mr. Peacock (along with James Jack have given me a lot of ideas for this blog – I love them both!) provided the answer, and this same intersection now looks like this in 2015:
A big thanks to James Allen Peacock for his idea and his picture for this article. Enjoy!
