If you are from Greensboro, likely, you know this photo was taken at the intersection of Highway 68 and Pleasant Ridge Road. This section of 68, just north of the airport, is known as Lynwood Smith Expressway. In Greensboro, there is also a Lynwood Drive, Lynwood Loop, Lynwood Lakes & Lynwood Lakes Baptist Church. Our google search reveals C. Lynwood Smith, Jr. is a local judge and that Dr. C.Lynwood Smith is a physician in Wake Forest, NC. However, after a few screens of searching, we're not seeing WHY this section of highway, a memorial highway, is named Lynwood Smith Expressway. Who was the Lynwood Smith of the highway? Do you know????
Today, the 1,300 + people who maintain city daily photo blogs were encouraged to post a picture of a funny sign. Our signs aren't "ha ha" funny but they are FUN signs that situate the picture in Greensboro. When seeing the 68 North 68 South sign, one must decide: head north? south? go straight? It is kind of funny that the GREENsboro water tower is red checkered. Actually our city was named for Major General Nathanael Greene, even though the green trees could have you thinking otherwise.
