Nice numbers.

I took this picture a few days ago at 6060 North Western Avenue in Chicago. Just a mile or so from our house. It takes me back to a world where a people called a person to come out and paint addresses on the glass above their doors—instead of going to Home Depot and buying four adhesive numbers.

I suppose when people stop specializing in things, it’s only a matter of time before everything looks cheap. Fortunately, for now, there are plenty of abandoned buildings around to admire.
