Photo of the Week: This Historic Building is Safe

This image by ic-db could easily have doubled as a Where’s Pauldo, as Pauldo has been known to frequent such a place. Now, not to take credit away from ic-db’s image or the skill by which it was shot, but this one makes the post on shear historic value—having once been a bank in the 1930’s the current owner saw a hidden gem and polished it up. The result, a compelling image of a pretty cool place.


This might be too easy for you, Loopters, but let me know exactly what/where is being shot in the image and I’ll talk to Pauldo about parting with more of his beloved shirts. NO GOOGLE.

Check out the rest of ic-db’s photostream:

Laura and Eric, at first glance, it seems you’ve both won. Laura, when was it called the Bank Draft?

it opened in mid 90s and closed in 2000, it was in the “microbrew” era, college and post college, “i’m artsy and young and can drink all your fancy hand-crafted beers and not worry about gaining weight, plus i’m home from college and my parents gave me $ so I’m not worried about the price”-phase.

ahhh the memories.

Ah, that sounds like a good phase. I would argue it’s had a resurgence in the 2000’s.
