... was the address of my studio for many years. Last week I drove by there and saw that the building was undergoing some work... possibly demolition. I hoped that it was being demolished and not remodeled. The building needed knocking down if any building did. It was a mess.
This was the scene today.
Sigh. No one will miss it. Many years ago it was a neighborhood grocery store and some of my older friends told me of fond memories of going in there to buy candy when they were little. A parade of failed businesses went through the building in the 70s and 80s. I was in there from 1987 till about 4 years ago. I guess my photo studio was in the building longer than anything since the grocery store. It appeared to have been built by an amateur builder. It was solid, but crooked. It had big heavy beams but nothing was plumb. The roof didn't have enough slope so it leaked constantly. Boy, I sure don't miss that.
