blimp mooring mast


blimp mooring mast, originally uploaded by freestone.

here in tallahassee, florida, is this hotel with a rather large flagpole!
flagpole? gotta be 60 to 80 feet high, not a flagpole, it is a

blimp mooring mast!

back in the 1930s, when this hotel was built, the blimps were the Next new Oncoming Thing, every building owner wanted the blimps to land there.
After the Hindenburg fire killed the blimps, these masts live on.
the hawks love them, what a perch for them. two hawks use this one a lot.
