Welcome back! We hope you are enjoying Name that City!
- Geraldine Fredritz Mock became the first woman to fly solo around the world in 1964. In what city did her trip start and end?
- In what city would you find a giant playground/jungle gym made from salvaged architectural and industrial objects?
- King Records, which became the sixth-largest record company in America, was the home of James Brown and what historians call “True American Music.” In what city was it located?
And here are the answers:
- Columbus, OH—Mock’s trip lasted 29 days and covered 22,860 miles in a single engine Cessna 180 that was christened the “Spirit of Columbus.”
- St. Louis, MO—It’s the City Museum, a 100-year-old warehouse in downtown St. Louis, where artists have repurposed the pieces of old cities to build miles of tunnels, slides, climbers, bridges, and castles.
- Cincinnati, OH—Cincy native Sydney Nathan started King Records. In addition to James Brown, artists who worked for the label included The Dominoes, The Royales, The Swallows, The Platters, The 5 Royales, and The Charms.
