I like to photograph storefronts and store windows, especially ones with really interesting mannequins or unique items or any that are just really arty. Like this one:
But I wanted to include in this post some vintage photos of storefronts that I had in my collection of photographs.
The first one most resembles the prompt photo of the two men standing in front of a coffee shop. These men aren't interested in coffee. They appear to be employees of the T. F. Fuller Grocery Store.
This guy really makes me sad. His suit doesn't fit well, he looks like he'd like to have one of those potatoes in the basket. I wonder if he worked at this store or was just passing by. Then why have his picture taken? Also, this looks like a photograph of a photo. Again, a puzzle. Who would have taken a photo of this particular photo? Maybe a family member?
