“As we pulled up to the stop sign (22nd and Fairlawn SE.) my wife and I looked at one another and said, almost simultaneously, “sweet city sign.”

According to the next-door neighbor, who lives in a wonderful house built by the works’ original owner and who wandered by while I was laying on the sidewalk trying to get the shot with both the cool fence and the sweet sign in the same frame, the iron works was a functioning business until a couple of years ago, when the owners wanted to sell for more than the market would bear. The works themselves were condemned and demolished, but the office remains almost intact, looking like the owners just pulled out the day-before-yesterday, phones on desks and keys and business cards displayed.”
