Jack's Building

My last few posts have been downers so here's something uplifting. On the way home from Jack's birthday dinner we noticed something special about the building next door to the restaurant. It was dark so I didn't take a picture of it then, but I went back a few days later. Coincidence? I don't think so.This was the sign in the window telling about the store location. It was a general store, furniture and undertaking, a cafe, an auto shop, a glass shop, a pet shop and a toy store. Interesting history huh? You can click on any of these pictures to enlarge them. This was the old mosaic tile on the floor in the entryway. And a picture of the drainage system just because it was neat. In my last post I was upset at seeing Jack's name on a bib for sale at WS. It just caught me off guard because I wasn't in that mindset. Whenever I see the boys names anywhere, I take a picture or cut it out because it reminds me of them, but seeing a bib with an embroidered name on it just made me realize what I was missing. I didn't expect that emotion while looking for spatulas on sale.

It's amazing to me that the Jackson Building also housed the Sam Bass Cafe!

Very interesting...

When I see pictures of old buildings I can almost imagine what it looked like in it's day. Very beautiful!

What a neat building. I love that you honor your boys with pictures when you see their names...maybe I'll start doing that too!

I really like the tile.

That building has outlasted many of it's occupants. But there it is like a monument to all it has contained.

I walked into a building in georgetown right after our loss in December. Was this in georgetown?
I remember they told me it was a general store and it also had mosaic title in the front, but I think it said MayFair or the Fair.
