Photo Challenge #389

Fred Born died.

Then his son donated a flagpole in his memory to the Senior Center.

A plaque at the base describes the longtime member as a “boatsman, machinist, story teller and Gentleman with a never-ending smile.”

It’s a wonderful plaque. However, no one ever sees it.

The only “06880” reader to correctly identify last week’s Photo Challenge was Susan Pfister. And she should know: She’s the director of the Senior Center. (Click here for the image; scroll down for the several wrong guesses.)

For this week’s challenge, you have to look up — not down. If you know where in Westport you’d see this, click “Comments” below.

NOTE: It’s not obscure. You just have to know where to look.

    Reminiscent of the upper-story windows (which are the source of the name of the painting) in the iconic Grant Wood painting “American Gothic” — perhaps this one is “American Romanesque”?
