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!

I love these old buildings, so much could be told by those walls.

Another great one. I could spend entire days photographing America. Love the boardwalk too.

I wonder how the title company will describe their address, "oh, you know the yellow building with blue and green accents...no, it's not the name of OUR business, but it's historical...no...historical...with an "O"!

It is amazing sometimes what comes up when you really open yourself to your surroundings.

I like this photo very much. My first question was, of course, whether the signage represented 2 businesses or 1... ;-)

Nicely done!

I love the old signage on buildings. I have photographed much more of it in downtown Tacoma than in Olympia. I also agree with you on the thought of going block by block and photographing your town. So much to see once you really look.
