Thank you for the wonderful photo! And for making the extra effort to get it to me by Valentine's Day. It was a hit!

I moved to Chicago nearly 14 yrs. ago. My first two apts were on Granville Ave., right up the street from Standee's. Ah, Standee's ... I spent most (if not all) of my early to mid-20s there. So many memories. I was delighted to find this amazing print! Not only that but Helene is simply lovely. The print was better than the original ad posting and arrived on-time, properly packaged. A great etsy experience all around.

Arrived ahead of schedule despite the short notice. Perfect for my Chicago themed bar. No one else had such cool photo of the place. Thank you!
nostalgic, mid-century-style snapshots of Americana
i've been told that my photos are like moments or places in time...
but always times past...
a glimpse of a neighbor's tv antenna from the screened-in porch... on a hot summer afternoon during summer break...
the city ice cream truck... with it's fabulous handpainted details (and a very adult-child lined up for bite)!
vintage Chicago with all her architectural and neon beauty...
or a 50s kitchenette with a soda bottle of daisies...
sometimes something very current shows up as well... but almost always with a penchant for an earlier time...
come on in and stay awhile and see if you remember...
and don't be a stranger... come back soon...
as i'm constantly adding new photography.
until i hear a knock on the back door... warm regards!
