Re: Where am I? (Can you place this picture...?)

Does the theater share the same name as the town?

No, the name comes from the first inhabitants in the area.

No, it says WE LM E TO R TAN, but you're close enough

It's hard to believe that Rotan once had two theaters, this one with over 700 seats and a smaller one, called the Ritz, with 300 seats. This theater was originally named "The Majestic".

I couldn't quite determine which letters were missing except for the "o" in Rotan. Unfortunately, it appears much of downtown is following the path of The Majestic.

OK: A couple of weeks ago, Bartbuilt and I made a Saturday ride into deep east Texas to scout out the area of the upcoming East Texas Sidecar Muster. In a town along one of Texas' #1 roads,we ran into these "ladies":



In what town were we??

Not quite that "deep" Mark -- but there is a tree in the name.

Nope, not Jasper. It's in the land of the pines at the South terminus of a #1 Texas Road.

Oh, so close. Look "in the middle" for a #1 road.

You're up Gene.

(The phone number on the sign is a trick: It shows as a Bronson prefix.)

Try this:

Hold the Ctrl key down and use the wheel on your mouse to zoom in and out.

When you're done Ctrl 0 will restore to the original size.
