WE AGAIN WELCOME OUR VISITORS FROM MONTGOMERY, ALABAMA HERE TO EXPLORE THEIR CITY'S NAVIGABILITY. Our final post in the series was on Saturday. Scroll down to Saturday if you missed it. If you want to share the series with others, the posts are spread from Monday Sept. 9, 2012 to Saturday Sept. 15, 2012. Click on "September" to your right and scroll to the bottom of the post marked "Montgomery Reader", then scroll up to read the posts in sequential order. When you get to the top of Sept. 9th more posts are mixed in with the regular postings through Saturday Sept. 15th..
We hope the series, a sort of stream of consciousness monologue by a Master Pilot viewing the history and future potential of Montgomery is starting to generate discussion in Montgomery. To the media, print, and electronic in Montgomery, the Chamber of Commerce, and the city government; this is our permission to you to utilize any and all parts of the various postings in any way you see fit with or without attribution in any way that will help generate and sustain discussion of Montgomery's navigational development.The Montgomery reader and all subsequent related postings are released into the public domain exclusive of photographs. We exercised due dilligence to assure photos were in the public domain, but the photos are not ours to release.
Good luck Montgomery and remember as you begin to research about navigational development, this site is always a great place to start. E-mail us at :
if we can assist you in any way with research. Go claim your navigable future!
