Times Change


Once upon a time, many of us dressed up and went downtown on Saturdays to shop at the many fine department stores in Birmingham.   Blach's Department Store was a special treat.  Today, it's lofts after many years of standing vacant.  Times change.

A little touch of sadness to see changes. Nostalgia kicks in. I understand why you render it black and white here.

Hopefully for good, but weren't the old times so full of inspiration!

such a great black and white....it's nice that they fix these old places up, seems lofts are the popular thing to do with them now. but wow, i'd love to see this back in it's original hey-day!

Ain't that the truth. I've worked in downtown St. Louis for 38 years (the horror!) and I've seen it all come and go. At least we've improved from the low point.
