This is a picture of my neighbor’s garage which opens onto the street behind us.  I love the way this tells a story of time.  The doors are from two different era’s as well as the open 9-5 sign in the middle.  John said that was how it was when he moved there so he’s not sure if it was a store or a car repair place or if someone just put that sign up there.  I think it makes for a very interesting photo.

  1. They need a little TLC but it does make for a great photo. I like the sign.

  2. I still haven’t made up my mind if the photo should be used commercially in a calendar, or we should call in a wrecking crew! If the “Open 9 – 5” sign is metal, you might want to pull it off the wall when no one is looking and sell it on ebay! Old metal signs are a hot commodity.

      Probably need the wrecking crew 🙂 I have always found something beautiful about old falling down buildings. The sign is metal and I have thought about taking it but I don’t think my neighbor would like that 🙂

  3. I like John’s doors and his sign. I’m thinking he doesn’t use them too much though based upon the plants growing in front. 🙂 One could say weeds, but I think I see Queen Anne’s Lace which I consider to be a beautiful flower. 🙂

      Yes it is Queen Anne’s Lace. There are lots of plants others consider weeds that I find beautiful;

  4. They have seen better days no doubt, but there’s just so much character in old weather-worn doors.
    Nice share 🙂

  5. I absolutely love them!

    I have a friend who goes around town here in atlanta taking pictures of the old areas and they are always so beautiful!

    1. I am so glad I took this photo because the garage has been torn down recently.
