About the Cover









I love this building.  It's the Northumberland County Courthouse in Sunbury, built in 1865.  An addition was completed in 1911.




The style is called Italianate, and the copper covered clock tower dominates this section of Market Street.




1865 was the year congress passed the 13th amendment, abolishing slavery, President Lincoln was murdered, the Secret Service was formed, Cornell University was chartered, and "Alice in Wonderland" was published.
