Otto V. Stransky & Son Funeral Parlor

What a neat sign and, I tell you, there are places where you just don't know if the place is closed or what. This place is at about 51st & Western, I got off the el and decided to walk south a few blocks. The funeral home was as cool looking as it got, past that were some newer businesses and then apartment buildings. I like to think that this old place still has secrets and that's why the property isn't up for sale.

Yes, those venues that have that ambiguously open/closed/out-of-business look are very curious. There are a lot of those here in Knoxville. Being new here, I don't have a clue whether or not some places that I'd like to go into because they look intriguing are still alive, so I just pass them by in my travels.
