The other day, I looked through some photos.
This shot — of a long-ago store in what was then Sherwood (now Sconset) Square — caught my eye.
It was nothing special — just another local business.
But it got me thinking:
- What’s happened to all our cool-looking, colorful stores?
- Why don’t they have fun names anymore?
- How come we lost all our paint shops?
- And is this what is meant by “painting the town red”?
