Welty on Wednesday: The Snaggletooth Sidewalk

Circa 1925: Christian Welty, Eudora’s father, was President of Lamar Life Insurance Company and the first skyscraper In Jackson was being built under his supervision to house the business.  The family home at 1119 Pinehurst was designed by the same Fort Worth architects.

The front walk from street to front door was almost complete,

It just needed one more stone to fill in a blank.

Eudora brought one such piece home from the Lamar Life  construction site and it was placed just so…


bright, shiny and white

and there it remains…


Eudora always said it looked like a false tooth!
