Street life – A sign of the times?


A sign of the times is how I see this photo.  I took it last weekend in a quiet little country town in Victoria (Australia) just minutes off the main highway. It is a very historic town full of quaint old buildings but it has seen better days, like many rural towns which are now bypassed and off the beaten track.

A sign of the times?

A sign of the times?

This shop was obviously a major player back in the days when Kodak was big business but the picture tells a different story today. There were many other such signs on walls of buildings and it’s a shame to see these bits of history just fade away.  I’m not sure what the answer is though.  This one just took my fancy for some reason!

I am entering this in Justine’s Eclectic Corner #7 with the prompt of Street Life – I hope it fits the criteria!

    Great photo! I like the color. I also like the lines and angles you captured. It is sad to see the fading of history.

      I think it was the lines and angles that appealed to me at the time. It is sad about the gradual fading away of such history. I appreciate your comment, as always. 😄
