So, with camera in hand I walked the town looking for interesting photos. Although the town is generally what we in Britain would call "rural", it does have a large Cummins Diesel engine plant in the centre. It has been smphatheticlly built, so as not to look "industrial". There is a small museum at the main entrance with some interesting exhibits, including a diesel powered Indy Car, which took pole position in 1952.
I did notice (with some amusement), there was one engine exhibit which had cast on the engine block "Made in England", (but it is an "International Company ! )
Like so many things on this trip,( by chance), I wandered past an "ice-Cream Parlour", built in the early 1900's, complete with marble "bar" and some decorative "Soda Fountains". The likes I,ve never seen in Britain.
I did, for the purpose of these reports, "sample" a small portion of there wares, and very nice it was too.
