Off Westminster Street
One of my classes is in downtown Providence, RI. I love to look at the architecture and the old signs of stores long gone by as I walk to class. Here are a few from Washington and Westminster Streets. The Tri-Store Bridge photo reads Cherry Hill, Gladdings, and Shepards - these were all the big department stores of the day. My mom remembers her grandfather driving her in from Connecticut to go shopping there. Unlike the other signs, Blake's Tavern is still operating.
A little inspiration for the weekend...
