Search engine website Google celebrates holidays and anniversary dates connected to famous figures with its “Google Doodle” program, which always involves replacing the site’s logo with a drawing or animation. Today’s Google Doodle honors the birthday of French-born industrial designer Raymond Loewy.
What’s the Roanoke connection? In 1947 Loewy updated the design for the N & W Passenger Station on Shenandoah Avenue — now home to the O. Winston Link Museum.
Hat tip, Ralph Berrier Jr.
