Information about the Gainesville midland can be found at the bottom of the following link's website:

You can find an image of what the Gainesville Midland looked like in the 1950's, by the following link. In the background of the image, you can see a building with the word
"snow drift" on it. That building was once the depot, then a grocery store, and was one of the only historic buildings still standing after a double tornado hit Gainesville
in 1936. The building remained standing behind where the Gainesville Midland stands today, until the middle of 2008 when it was demolished, and paved over as a parking lot.

More photographs of the Gainesville Midland can be found at this link, unfortunately I wasn't alive during the time to take them myself.

2009-01-13 [Hedda]: Nice start! Does that man-made lake have a name?

Aha, Lake Lanier it says in the title... Blind me.

2009-01-13 [Hedda]: I added the names in the subtexts too, and removed an extra newline so that the boxes are beside each other instead of on top of each other.

2009-01-13 [Xuan.]: :] Thank you! i was going to ask for your help, but I don't remember if i messaged your, or accidentally messaged someone else. this is going to be a fun project, I can talk my husband into getting me out of the house! lol.

2009-01-14 [Hedda]: I watch the contest page and try to help everyone <img:stuff/cheshmak.gif>

2009-01-25 [Xuan.]: can you help me make them clickable so others can view larger?

2009-01-25 [Hedda]: I just did. Where do you get those strange links from?

2009-01-25 [Xuan.]: What do you mean strange. I uploaded them to a seperate wiki and then copied the links from there, it would have probably helped if I had copied them from the edit view. :] Thank you very much mister hedda!!!

2009-01-26 [Hedda]: Yes, it's much better to copy from the edit-view (advanced edit)

Otherwise you have to copy the right link. That is: The link to the big image, not to the thumbnail. And then write in img300:

2009-01-26 [Xuan.]: :], so what do you think about my page so far? I tried to make it very informational, since that is kind of the point of landmarks.

2009-01-26 [Hedda]: It's great! No need to go to Georgia now <img:stuff/zabuN-gif.gif>

2009-01-26 [Xuan.]: lol. haha, well you aren't missing out on too much, well not in Gainesville atleast.
