This post is nothing more than an opportunity to show you this:
I took it on the corner of Rowena and Glendale Blvd. in Silverlake.
I had been threatening for a long time to go to the bar that was on this site. The front of the bar was boarded up instead of having these big plate glass windows. One window said AUTO and the other said BAR. White paint, red letters.
I wanted to go to the AUTO BAR. I wondered what it was like inside.
Alas, I never got to see it.
The Man drove me by it about a week ago and today I stopped to photograph what was beneath the sheets of plywood. Obviously during the renovations of this space (to become a restaurant and market) they uncovered this painted window a few weeks ago. I hope they can find some way to keep it, but it’s broken and I can’t imagine what health inspector will let a restaurant open with a broken front window.
I’m glad to see that I wasn’t the only one fascinated with this, I saw another post on buzznet earlier.
