It wasn’t planned today – I was supposed to stay home and do some Spring cleaning. I think David could tell I needed a creative break. So we took a drive to the city he loves and protects – Gary, Indiana. We were going to go to the upstairs section
when we came across this:
The second and third stories are no longer accessible and obviously no longer safe.
At one point David kept a blog and here is an archive of this building. Shutter-Tonin. He definitely has his own style. I think he’s going to revive the blog. 😉
I can imagine this sign in its glory with flashing lights a display that the city was thriving. “Was” being the key word here.
Amazingly there are still light bulbs in the sign.
We can see most of this stuff from the outside of the building. I love this wall! David didn’t think it feasible to take home. (Just kidding, I wasn’t trying to take it home) but wow what a backdrop it would make.
and just another detail.
I’ve posted the rest of the set on my Flickr Account
