Old concrete umbrellas or mushrooms of smokers' plaza's severity.

Old concrete umbrellas or mushrooms of smokers' plaza's severity.
The umbrellas would cast a cooler shade if plants were cultivated atop their tops, but maybe the creation of an Urban Heat Island Effect was an important part of the plan for the plaza?, there's no clear means of tracking down the landscape architect -- who very possibly has passed away by now, people told me -- to ask him (or her, I suppose, but that seems unlikely).

Also I could see where plastic hanging baskets of begonias or some such might look nice to see dangle, from each corner of the concrete canopies.

In downtown Bowling Green, Ohio, on May 30th, 2011, outside a former Huntington Bank on the west side of South Main Street (Ohio Route 25), south of West Wooster Street.
