Windows on West Main

As we begin to plan for 2014, we will be looking at the changing face of West Main Street for many upcoming posts, discussions, and quite likely, a slideshow at C’ville Coffee.  We’ve begun to pull together the images in our photo library of this part of town and we now have hundreds of photos, some dating back many decades.

For now though, I’ve assembled this small selection of my own photos.  These are of windows along West Main Street from recent times.  A photo essay of sorts…

DSC_0825Good color and detail here. A former appliance store, now middle eastern deli, and the reflection of a former car dealership, now a gourmet food market.
