NamelessTaverns, Cool Signs, and Crazy Birds








Still from Western Avenue, between 69th and 73rd or so. I love these nameless Old Style joints. Old Style is the south side's beer of choice. I took a couple of shots of signs for businesses still open, though the cleaners had haphazard signs in their front windows. Yerkes looked like it was going strong. The house is about a block from the cleaners, and honestly, I don't know why there are so many birds perched there. They were actually in two squarish bushes in front and the birds took off as soon as I stopped, never mind aimed the camera. There's likely a bigger bird in the area, and these were his minions.

I like these photos you're posting. Cool places. There's a kind of old-fashioned feel to them...of something that's fading away but not quite completely gone.
