Squint Shot 010212
As we continued a walk around the downtown last summer, on an early morning after breakfast at Olden Days Cafe, we wandered along the alley behind the building in the southeast quadrant. Anyone familiar with this site will know I'm always on the lookout for "doorways to nowhere" and even "windows to nowhere." Over the years, windows and doors have been bricked or cemented in and painted over. Another example of this is at the back of what was the Blackmer's Clothing store and then Utter's Menswear, back in the day -- early to mid 1900s. Take a minute and notice -- and then maybe do like I do and wonder what those times were like.
