Time for a Name Change?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 27 October 2015 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Our recent trip to Alaska made us realize there's going to be a lot of name changing in the very near future. Mount McKinley, named after an American President who never visited the State of Alaska, was re-named Mount Denali, its original Native American name, in September 2015 by President Barack Obama. We came across so many t-shirts, key chains, maps, and photos with the name Mount McKinley on them, only to now be outdated.

Happy (and costly) Silly Tuesday!

Indeed, the changes are slow and expensive. Well seen, well said and well done.

They will become collectible items from the paST. Nice architectural shot though I'm not convinced by the architecture :)

@grouser: I totally agree, even if it is the rear elevation of the bank.

Mhelene from Villiers-sur-Marne, France

Great framing ! Indeed it's better to keep an original name !

Luckily and hopefully the bank does not invest in the keychains !

I hope you bought some of those Mt. McKinley goods which will soon be popping up on eBay at big prices. A lovely B&W of the bank and locale.
