Be Safe

Earlier this year I started a half-assed job of trying to put thousands of old photographs in some sort of order.  It's not finished yet.  There's a lot of tedium involved with this sort of task, and also jolts of pleasure when pics. I'd completely forgotten about turn up.  Here's a sign in the window of the Ridge Paint Hardware Co., on Third Avenue.  A relic from a 20th Century Gotham.  Everything about the sound of the phrase "jimmy proof locks" makes me happy.

2011.  The store closed in 2015.
