Hello! I stumbled upon this photo of yours in an image search. It is amazing, and this particular place has special meaning to our family. Do you sell prints of your photos? Or would I have your permission to download and print it for display in our home? Thank you!! Karon

Hi Karon: If we follow one another on Flickr you can download the photo for use under the terms of Creative Commons licensing, which includes non-commercial use -- you may need to create a Flickr account to make that connection: https://www.flickr.com/photos/suttonhoo22/3547188818/

I would love to hear more about the connection this photo has to your family history -- what a happy discovery. :) If I remember right I passed this sign briefly in passing on a business trip a long long time ago.

Hi again! Thank you so much for your quick response and the help! I have created a Flickr account (Karon Zablonski, with screenname waitinhope), and am now following you. I'm not a photographer by any stretch of the imagination, but I uploaded a couple of photos I love from the hotel in Guatemala City where we first met our son 10 years ago. :)

So, Red Top is located in Hamburg, NY, where my husband grew up, and adjacent to his high school right on Rt. 5 on Lake Erie. He introduced me to it when we started dating, and we've been going ever since. They serve great hot dogs and the BEST milkshakes, and we love them so much that we even stopped there on our wedding day en route from the reception to our hotel. :) Now we take our son when we are in town visiting my husband's family. :) I am planning to hang this photo in our kitchen when we finish renovating it this summer.

Thank you again!!!
