Cross-Country Connections: Landmark

From Erin in Takoma Park, Maryland: 

This statue is of Andrew Jackson at the Battle of New Orleans, by Clark Mills in Lafayette Square, directly to the north of the White House.  The pigeons are quite outnumbered by the native squirrel population in the park, and so are keeping safe atop poor President Jackson.

From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois:  

From a recent trip to visit Erin in Washington D.C. – The Washington Monument at night.

From me in Minneapolis, Minnesota:

Uptown: Minneapolis Lakes District – Abdallah’s then and now. The plaque reads:

Albert Abdallah Immigrated to the United States as a teenager from Lebanon, arriving in Minneapolis at the turn of the last century. He entered the confectionary business at a soda fountain in downtown Minneapolis, where he met Helen Trovall, the daughter of Swedish immigrants. Albert and Helen married, and together they opened the Calhoun Candy Depot at 2924 Hennepin Avenue, in the then new Rainbow Building. They prospered along with the community. In 1916, the store was renamed Abdallah Candy Company, and by 1924 a restaurant was added. It emerged from the Depression, but at a new location nearer to Lake Calhoun, which allowed the store to introduce take-away ice cream to beachgoers. Candy was the core of Albert’s offerings and in 2009 Abdallah Candies celebrated 100 years as a family business.
