I wonder what the founding fathers wore when they were relaxing. Their version of tennis shoes and shorts.

The Monticello visitors center has a statue of Th. Jefferson, telescope in hand, next to where the
shuttle bus loads. Visitors can stand next to the man, see how they measure up.

The sense of enclosure and the shade these trees provide helps to make “mode-shift” more inviting.
Park the car and walk. Sadly, when individuals in this allee have been cut down in recent years
they have not been replaced.

Kyuyo Street. Sweet shisa.

When in pairs, the left shisa traditionally has a closed mouth, the right one an open mouth.
The open mouth wards off evil spirits, and the closed mouth keeps good spirits in.–Wikipedia

historic manimals
Sitting on a shelf at Burnley Moran Elementary School, Charlottesville, VA. I think the 2nd figure from the left is local grandee Th. Jefferson.
3rd from the left whichever indigenous princess wore her hair in a ponytail. To the far right, US Representative David Stern Crockett (the hat).
That leaves two, an unsmiling man/woman far left and an African American male. ID help please.

Burnley-Moran was built in 1954. It takes its name from the first two women to head Charlottesville schools. Carrie Burnley was principal of McGuffey School for twenty-eight years, and Serepta Moran was principal of Venable School for twenty-one years. The mascot is the bobcat.–Cvillepedia
