Bad Photography Sunday: Wayne County Courthouse

There are certain towns in our area that remind me of Mayberry, and in the best possible way.  One of them is Honesdale.  It has that small town feel, and you can find everything you want without leaving the borough.

The Wayne County Courthouse remains one of my favorite places.  As you can see, it's a pretty building.  What you can't see is the modern annex, which they had the good sense to hide in the back.  It doesn't detract from the looks of a great, historic building.

On top of that, the first story I covered as a radio street reporter was here in 1982-- a homicide trial.  Small world.  The district attorney back then was Ray Hamill.  You know his son, Jim-- a WNEP reporter and anchor.
