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.

They need a little TLC but it does make for a great photo. I like the sign.
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 🙂
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;
They have seen better days no doubt, but there’s just so much character in old weather-worn doors.
Nice share 🙂
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!
I am so glad I took this photo because the garage has been torn down recently.
