Wrong way on Broadway

WrongWay.JPG

I know this has nothing to do with , photos, or even computers but, I was walking up Broadway near my job, when I happened to notice this granite inlay on the ground. Now I’ve seen these black strips before, embedded in the sidewalk; they list everyone who’s ever had a ticket-tape parade down the Canyon of Heroes. What caught my eye was “Wrong Way”.

I know the text in the above is difficult to read. I’ll help, it says:

AUGUST 5, 1938 DOUGLAS “WRONG WAY” CORRIGAN FOR HIS FLIGHT FROM TO IRELAND INSTEAD OF HIS “INTENDED” DESTINATION OF CALIFORNIA
