I guess I'm not allowed to play this one.


Despite the sign, I believe this is the International Civil Rights Center and Museum in Greensboro, NC. The original Woolworth store at 132 South Elm was the site of the 1960 Greensboro lunch counter sit-ins.

Love these trivia posts! Keep them coming...

Very funny, Eric! I took the picture last December when I visited Eric in Greensboro.

Owen is, of course, correct -- it's the Civil Rights Museum in Greensoboro, where the famous lunch counter sit-ins took place. I was thinking about this today as I was eating a burger at Sutton's lunch counter on Franklin Street.

It wasn't easy to get a picture of this that didn't have the Museum sign in it.
