    Thanks. If anyone has ever surfed the microfilm at most libraries for newspapers from 1900-1930, they'll know that the swastika was once a common everyday symbol like a four leafed clover or a rainbow. Of course those days are gone.

    I think the reason the house survived is that there wasn't as much hysteria in WWII as there was in WWI. One of these days, I need to go out to the Power's Cabin in Graham County and talk about hysteria and conformity. That place has one (h e double hockey sticks) of a tale to tell!

    These are neat pictures!

    Portland's banking street (6th Ave, I think?) is decked out in swastikas. Late 1800's, early 20th century brick buildings. They are up above eye level, up near the moldings on the top of the buildings, just below the roof or just above 2nd floor windows. Nobody really looks up and sees them, but when you're in an armored car bored out of your mind, waiting for the custodian to come out of a bank, well, you look everywhere.

    Portland used to have a carosel by the world trade center (of Portland) which had a controversial wooden horse. It was carved before the Nazi era, and had an Indian motif theme; Navaho perhaps. It has huge black swasticas (not rotated like Hitler's,) on the saddle of the horse, and people complained about it daily. I think eventually they just removed that one horse.

    Natalie, they are everywhere in AZ, NM, and Utah. Should be some in SW Colorado. We saw some nice panels in Mesa Verde last week.

    Google showed one at the John Martin Reservoir area. http://www.associatedcontent.com/art...=185501&cat=16 . Might be worth a trip.
