Jerry Lotz of Louisville, Kentucky is no stranger to controversy - the former iron worker and a collector of vintage Americana icons has been the subject of controversy in his community for many years. Lotz's unique collection is exhibited in creative form on a corner of Frankfort Avenue. My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Jerry on a sunny Saturday morning in July 2008. Lotz is an enjoyable person to talk with - the kind of guy that's never met a stranger. Our conversation covered the gamut - world travels, friends, visitors from around the country, New Orleans, Bob Hope, war memorials, Red Skelton, and more. Lotz possesses a likeable personality and a keen sense of humor. During our conversation he also expressed a deep appreciation for American history and our veterans. From the sidewalks, individuals are welcome to browse Lotz's intriguing collection that is secured behind an artistic wrought iron fence that surrounds his property.
