Continuing our trip through 2004, here are some old photos of mine I haven’t looked at since they went on the disc.
Pride Cleaners. I can tell you this was (probably) taken somewhere between New Jersey and Connecticut by the other shots in that batch. Unfortunately, I can’t seem to track its location down precisely. That could mean that sometime in the last 14 years this one either changed names (pretty likely) or was torn down (wouldn’t surprise me at all). If anyone recognizes this and wants to smack me upside the head and say “it’s in X town and still kicking, you dolt!”, I’d love to hear from you.
This one I do know the location on. This is Heller/Heller Liquors at 200 Franklin Avenue, Nutley, NJ. It’s still going strong, and that vitrolite facade and Heller/Heller neon is still in place. Since I took this photo, the vertical neon has been removed and the formstone on the facade has been covered in what looks like black painted wood.
