Yeah, it is. Thanks for the more accurate location fix, Dave. I can never remember street names.

The other end of that block is the Grand Ole Opry. In between are an assortment of pubs, and the (mentioned elsewhere) Viceroy Restaurant. I think.

My Dad is a designer of sorts and he was asked to create the logo for the Garden Festival and supply button brooches etc as souvenirs for it.

He turned it down as he thought it would never take off.


Still kicking himself 20odd years later!
