Yesterday was such a beautiful day that I decided to forgo my usual jammies-and-crime-shows Sunday routine and take off on a photo adventure. Jeff, Bill and I drove through Ohio River towns, ending up in East Liverpool to hunt for more junk that we possibly do not need. But it’s been so long since we looked, I figured why not? I found three great old photos (which you’ll see in future posts), and the awesome score of the last few months: an art deco announcement plaque with overhead lamp from the Roy Powell funeral home. East Liverpool was a ghost town at 4 p.m. on a Sunday March afternoon, but tucked away on the former site of an old theater was this trompe l’oeil mural of a garden fence and two secret doors, possibly of the theater that once stood there? The things you find when you wander aimlessly.
