As you can see in this picture, the road was rough and unpaved. there were a lot of trees growing in the surroundings.
As many businesses you would see in those days, the owner of the business would live upstairs and conduct business down below.
These proud owners were not afraid to stand on the street with their dog, something you would not dare do in that same place today.
One day while walking Danny Boy, I exited an opening in the fence at the far side of Keeler's Korner apartments, and came upon the perfect angle to take a picture.
Danny Boy was very patient while I snapped a bunch of photo's at slightly different angles.
The day was very gloomy, so there was not much in the way of drama as far as shadows cast.
Today as you can see, many of the tree's have been chopped down to make way for housing.
So with a good reference photo in hand, I set out to make a drawing. I decided to draw it instead of paint it, in order to make it have an old time, black and white photo type of feel.
