local font find #8

The last time I was in Watkins Glen I guess I wasn't looking up very often. I would have spent considerable time in the location where this great lettering was visible.

This building is beautiful on its own but when the top of the facade has this great lettering from long ago, is worthy of some mention. To be honest, the lettering is pretty straight forward with a great W and M. The kicker are those accents hovering in the openings of the L's. The dark textured rectangle that encompasses the lettering sure adds a useful contrast to make it all POP!

You can research this old odd fellows fraternal organization to learn more about what might have been occurring 100 years ago in this corner of the Watkins Glen area.
