Metal awnings


Few awnings like this survive in our neighborhood today. Even this one may be upgraded soon…. Nice pounding rain sound, as I recall, right up there with the echo in an attic under an uninsulated tin roof….

Love those stripes, too!

    Never had a tin awning on any dwelling but the rain on the cabin roof is one of my favorite sounds ever. And waking up on the front porch of the old cabin hearing the crows caw.

    Or the foghorn at the cabin, which I swear plays the first few notes of “Summer in the City”. (Maybe in the key of B-flat?)

    Ah, the audio-memory link—right up there with the smell-memory link….
