This is a huge tire store doing a lot of business with truckers and heavy equipment users. The faded big group portrait in the window, which at first I figured would date way back to the 40s or so, turned out to be a color print, while the truck looks like a much later model, 60s or even 70s. Come to think of it, a print from the 40s would have been b&w and probably not anywhere near so faded, despite the long exposure to sunlight through heavily tinted glass.
Meanwhile, Spring Has Sprung at The WPII blog. For the next two weeks there will be daily postings of pictures from early spring in western Connecticut, 2009
