  1. Love these beautiful old touches. They knew how to make a building stand out back then.

  2. Love the barn doors on yesterday's post (other blog). Is that tin on that storefront??? Aren't you glad you're capturing this, before they're gone?!

    1. turquoisemoon -- I think what looks like tin is pressed zinc. The outdoor elements are certainly at work on this old building. thanks -- barbara

  5. When you think of the loving care that went into those details: it's kind of sad.
