The Fort Bragg Obelisk?

I really like the routine I have developed of waking up at 5:45 and out the door at 6:00. I generally walk for a little over an hour at 3.3 mph and return home looking forward to brewing my cup of green tea and checking my e-mail. My brother in Kirkland, Washington is three years younger than I and still a working stiff. He arrives at work at 5:00 AM! So, each morning I have an e-mail waiting from him and I respond. We have had this "back and forth" going for almost four years! Then, fifteen minutes before my wife wants to wake up, usually 8:00 or 8:30 depending on her teaching schedule, I make our Oatmeal and a steaming latte for her. Then it is time to compose my Walking Fort Bragg blog.

It is really nice being Mr. Retired Guy!

Because it is dark durning my morning walk now I find I am starting to do additional walks during the day to photograph various oddities for this blog. My friend Eddie gave me another assignment and I went looking for it yesterday afternoon.

By Golly, it was located only two blocks from our apartment and I had never noticed it before! It is on the south/east corner of Fir and McPherson. As you can see it is dated 1936. I have no idea what it was about and will add it to my list of questions for the folks at the Fort Bragg Museum.
Speaking of the Fort Bragg Museum, I stopped in the other day and looked around. I was given the names of a few people that may be able to answer some of my questions.

Square Telephone poles?
