Back Bay Parking

The sign from the automobile stable of the Danker and Donahue Garage floats like a dirigible into Newbury Street with the former equine stables peeking over to see what's up.

Rick's Roadhouse

Munchin' some ribs outside in the Jewelry District in Providence. The stacks are for a power plant, not the barbeque smoker.

Liberty Elm Diner

A pan-o-ramic view from the counter of the Liberty Elm Diner on Elmwood near Roger Williams Park in Providence. This diner was a Worchester model made in 1947 and resided downtown until it trundled south in 1954. Mighty fine pie.

Come Back to the Five and Dime

On the corner of Snow and Westminster, this former five-and-dime store (Kresge?Newberry?Kress?) now houses the Rhode Island State Archives. With inflation, ten cents from the 20's is now in the range of a dollar, making 99¢ stores the new Woolworths.
