A few months back we started to take notice of numerous large iron rings in and around the various commercial districts of the city. Whenever we happened through a district such as East Sprague we were on the lookout. After a little research we discovered that these rings were used by residents to tie up horses when they were out conducting business. It's hard to imagine Spokane as a rough western town, but little things like these simple iron rings are the best evidence there is.
So, we're going to document them using a simple Google maps mashup, but we need your help. If you happen across one of these little iron rings embedded in a curb somewhere in the city, we want you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send us the following info:
- Your Name (optional)
- Date discovered
- Location (Street address is best but we'll take the closest intersection)
- A photo if you have one (otherwise we'll take our own)
