Floyd

Floyd
Made by Christopher [cbpix.com]
Detail of bullet damage on the Ohio Historical Marker sign which denotes the place of death of Charles A. Pretty Boy Floyd, near East Liverpool, Ohio. Although the act of shooting an historical marker is terrible vandalism, I have to admit is was a great coincidental shot; the bullet having been fired into the other side of the marker and striking the F in Floyd's own name. There are numerous large caliber bullet holes in the marker. You can almost envision a film noir era G man with a .45 tommy gun standing there banging away at it. The marker in it's entirety reads: In these fields formerly the site of the Ellen Conkle farm, notorious Depression-Era desperado Charles Arthur Pretty Boy Floyd met his death at the hands of federal agents and members of the East Liverpool Police Department on October 22, 1934. Floyd's criminal career as a bank robber, who reputedly committed a dozen murders, mostly police officers caused him to be designated Public Enemy No.1 only three months earlier by J. Edgar Hoover. Believed to be returning to his home in the Cookson Hills of Oklahoma after years in hiding, Floyd and his partner, Adam Richetti, had attracted attention of local police near Wellsville, Ohio. A shoot-out ensued, resulting in Richetti's capture and Floyd's escape. Agent Melvin Purvis supervised the three-day manhunt, which ended here when eight lawmen ended Floyd's life of violence. Pretty Boy's body was placed on public display in East Liverpool before being returned to Oklahoma for burial. A fun, creepy fact: The funeral home where Floyd was embalmed and displayed in E. Liverpool is now a bed and breakfast. The plaster death mask that they made of him hangs in the former embalming room, which is now the laundry. For some reason my wife, who loves B&B's refuses to get a room there with me.

This one lane bridge spans Little Beaver Creek at Sprucevale, near Calcutta in St. Clair Township, Columbiana County, Ohio. The ghost of Esther Hale appears here every August 12th. It was on that date in 1837 she was left at the altar in her wedding dress, forever jilted. Her apparition is a terrible, freakish site, in tattered satin and lace gown and veil. Legend says that if she touches you, she becomes young and beautiful once more, but alas, you die. Source: Carnegie Public Library, East Liverpool. A second ghost haunts Sprucevale from near the ruins of an old lock along the Sandy and Beaver Canal.

2010 Egg tempera on panel A friend of mine who owns a produce farm and greenhouse tosses his leftover produce at the edge of a field when he closes for the season. I was walking past one day just before dark and noticed the corpses of frost damaged and half eaten pumpkins and gourds giving an eerie glow in the low light of dusk, when the color is mostly gone. The briars surrounding them only added to the feeling of decay and death and remind me of barbed wire. It’s a brutal painting, much more than abandoned produce.

Old Hambleton's Mill, ca 1850, Sprucevale, St. Clair Township, Columbiana County, Ohio. It is located near the one-lane Sprucevale Bridge, haunted by Esther Hale, a woman jilted on her wedding day August 12, 1837. Sprucevale is the source of a number of ghost stories. There was an old brick house near this mill where a young man hung himself in the 19th century. It was said no picture of the structure ever produced a completely clear image. The structure was demolished in 2007.

You can easily spend the day exploring the Sprucevale section of Beaver Creek State Park. Lots to see and do. Ghost stories abound about Sprucevale and its environs. It's not scary, it's beautiful. But then again, I would never go there at night!

Hoge's Restaurant, Calcutta, St. Clair Township, Columbiana County, Ohio. The restaurant has been around since the mid-20th century. In the 1950's it offered classic curb service - cute servers brought burgers, fries, and shakes right to your car, but not on roller skates and there wasn't a poodle skirt in sight. Update: Just stopped by Hoge's for lunch yesterday (July 28, 2009). The Reuben and fries with brown gravy took me back to 1966 in a flash. So good!

Fredericktown, Columbiana County, Ohio. I have a hard time driving through old Fredericktown and not taking a picture of this schoolhouse dating from the 1870's. Fredericktown is a small, isolated village sitting in a deep valley. Getting to it is beautiful. Seeing it is beautiful. Leaving it is hard.

For whatever reason people feel compelled to shoot this sign but no others in the area. Maybe it has something to do with Pretty Boy Floyd? It does add a little something extra when you are standing there reading this sign.
