Doomed Dome

It was very futuristic, the look of tomorrow, when it opened in 1962. Today it is the dated look of yesterday.
The well known domed Woodstock service centre on 401 east is slated for closure. Saturday an open house was held, and some of the staff from the early years attended. One woman, Eunice Moore was 91. Another lady was much younger, but then she was only 17 when she worked for the colonel back in 1963. For the full story and more pictures see: Digital Journal - Doomed Domes.

It is hard to see the original Scott's Chicken Villa in the present building. The dome is still prominent, but the tall, antenna-like structure is gone.
