victorian remodel: storefront exposed

We peeled off the uninviting plywood and exposed the storefront windows with old ads on them.  From what neighbors tell us these were covered in the early 1980s.  We’ll be cleaning this up and making a more transparent ground level here.  We had to replace some missing plate glass along the left side; the right side were intact.

I guess the whiskey was a big seller!

Sidewalk landscaping:  remove the concrete, plant some vegetation.  A simple idea with a big impact, from increased permeability to aesthetically pleasing.   I’m very excited about this area we will plant . . and add some green in front of the building.
