      problems with them!-- ajwright@...


      Listings since July 2002 are also at
      http://www.anes.uab.edu/alahistnews0.htm

      as well as in the archives of alabamahistory at Yahoo:
      http://groups.yahoo.com/group/alabamahistory

      Listings prior to that date are in the archives.

      Materials in brackets are my additions. Items are listed more or less in
      reverse chronological order within each section.

      All links are working at the time I send this email and post them to the
      web page listing. Some of the longer URLs may wrap to the next line; you
      may need to copy and paste in order to get the entire link into your
      browser. If that doesn't work, there are a number of other options. Go
      to the appropriate listings page [start at
      http://www.anes.uab.edu/alahistnews0.htm ]and try from there. You can go
      to the alabamahistory archives at Yahoo as noted above and connect to
      the article there. You can also copy the link and paste it into Word and
      see if that straightens it out so you can copy and paste it into your
      browser. If the story is fairly recent, you can also try Google News at
      http://news.google.com/ ; put some significant words from the article
      title in the search box and see if the article comes up.

      A listing of Alabama history links can be found at
      http://www.anes.uab.edu/alahistory.htm

      Please send me information on broken links you find or links I don't
      have listed!

      Feel free to forward this email as desired....

      **Alabama Experience: On The Azalea Trail [APT]
      Sunday, April 16, 2006 at 12:30PM
      From the 1930s through the 1950s tourists flocked to Mobile to follow
      the
      Azalea Trail. A pink line painted down the street indicated a route
      lined
      with brilliant springtime blooms. Although the pink line has long since
      faded, the legacy of the Azalea Trail can be seen at Bellingrath
      Gardens, in
      the rise of Mobile's horticulture industry, and at the annual Festival
      of
      Flowers.
