Previously I had visited Stanton Iowa and wrote about it here.  I was back this summer and the day I was there it was raining, but I did manage to get some shots of the coffee pot and coffee cup.  You’re probably wondering what I’m talking about.

Stanton Iowa’s claim to fame is that it is the hometown of actress Virginia Christine, best known to television viewers as “Mrs. Olsen” in classic commercials for Folgers.  As such the town has seen fit to honor it’s former inhabitant by making the town’s two water towers resemble a coffee pot and a cup on a saucer.
