A window into Moreland of the Past
2009-01-26 14:48:46

The little neighborhood we live in is adjacent to an old hub of activity. West Moreland still has a theater, shops and even a hardware store.

I dropped my phone a bit back, and it seems it's taking pictures a little out of sync with time now. Here's a shot of West Moreland a little before I arrived on the scene:

The hardware store is up the street now, Claudette Colbert hasn't played at the theater is years and I would have to wonder what Jacqueline would think of Stickers Asian Cafe being in her store -- even I find the chai with rum a little cosmopolitain for Portland of 2009. I'm also curious if the clock kept time or if it was as inaccurate as it is today.

Even with being able to take picutres of the past, I still need a new phone...
