This old concrete post was wearing body metal long before it became popular. I love the colors in this photo, especially the part of the blue paint that's still wet from the rain. This post, along with another almost like it, stands at the corner of 13th Street and Duane Avenue. I don't know if the ring was originally intended for hitching horses, or what. Someone has added a padlock, probably later than the ring, but long enough ago that it's completely rusted. The white reflection to the right is of this wall towering above.
It looks like a new business is moving in and brightening the shop behind the post. There have been several in this location in the short time I've been here. I remember when there were used cars parked in this lot, the office being (I think) to the right of the colorful store.
Does anyone remember more about this corner and the businesses that were here?
Cieldequimper: This would be another nice object d'art for your home, oui?
