Fisher Bros. Company: More old signs
Here's a historic building at 7th Street along the River Walk that has been carefully refinished to preserve the old signs of business no longer in existence. I'm not sure if the sign indicates two businesses or one. You can see paper taped on the glass of the doorway indicating that a title company now resides here, or will soon. I love the pattern made by the railings. This part of the River Walk is made of board planks. The material of the walk changes from place to place, which is one of the many things that keeps it interesting. The building is very pale yellow, so I chose it this week for Mellow Yellow Monday. Unfortunately, I don't have any history on the building, but I'll play catch-up when I find time to visit the Historical Museum again. In fact, it would be nice to post a photo of that imposing edifice. So many potential photos, so few days in a year! Once you open your eyes, there is so much to see. I was even thinking just how many photos could be taken on every block in town. It might be fun to give it a go from that perspective someday :) Or what about a "boat per day" blog? Lots of ideas!
