Downtown on the eastern edge of Chinatown stands this florist's shop.
A couple of doors east is this old house, which has been converted into offices for a law firm.
Their specialties are inscribed on this sign outside.
Both establishments have chosen an ideal location to do business in. For what lies between the two is this establishment, which always has new customers. Rather quiet ones at that, not so much as a peep out of them.
Yes, it do not seems an lively place.ReplyDelete
Bonitas construções. Uma arquitetura bem interessanteReplyDelete
I wonder if the middle establishment was a location incentive for the two on either side :)ReplyDelete
I love the old house. I always worry about people who work in funeral homes. It seems like it would take its toll.ReplyDelete
Very funny. I should come up with some lawyer jokes, but it's too early. Funny, too, that your ex-brother-in-law is very much like my current brother-in-law!ReplyDelete
@Tomas: they usually aren't!ReplyDelete
@Gracita: the architecture of the funeral home does appeal to me.
@Janis: it does take the right person.
@Lowell: at least I don't have to see mine anymore!
laughing at your commentary. :)ReplyDelete
I'm sure their business is very stable :-)ReplyDelete
What a fantastic combination. :-)ReplyDelete
Location, location, location!ReplyDelete
A good eye and sense of humor is everything sometimes to get a good photo. Nice one.ReplyDelete
Well placed indeed!ReplyDelete
@Tex: I couldn't resist!ReplyDelete
@Tamago: it's a pretty stable line of work, after all. No shortage of people passing on!
@Jan: an ideal combination.
@Janey: thank you!
@Red: thank you.
@Sharon: the firm and the florist chose well when they settled in!
Always new customers for both lines of work...ReplyDelete
Great location and combination, both for their business and for customers' convenience.ReplyDelete
A nice selection of fine buildings!ReplyDelete
Yes I'd say, location, location, location. That was drummed into me by the real estate agents when we bought our homes.ReplyDelete
Haha. That is a great location for those businesses. :)ReplyDelete
That seems to be a common thing to have a florist by a funeral home but I hadn't seen a lawyer's office before!ReplyDelete
Such deep and lovely shadows on these buildings. And to think these these businesses complement a final resting place. Clever strategies.ReplyDelete
Wouldn't mind an office in that building instead of my huge open plan...ReplyDelete
Those are beautiful houses. The snow makes them all the more so.ReplyDelete
@VP: especially the florist, though I'm sure the firm more than benefits when people come out of a funeral visitation, see the sign, and start thinking of writing a will.ReplyDelete
@Nancy: it was good thinking.
@Halcyon: each have their own charm.
@Denise: in this case, location works!
@Pamela: the florist giving sympathy bouquets such prominence on the sign makes sense too.
@RedPat: I can't think off hand of funeral homes I've been to having law offices nearby, though florists were never far away from one.
@Gemma: it was a good morning to be taking photos, and this was fairly early in the day, so the florist wasn't even open yet.
@Ciel: the house is appealing!
@Shelly: a lot of the houses in this area are a century old or so. I have no idea when the firm came in and took over.
Nice selfie in front of the flower shop. :-)ReplyDelete
Gosh everything you need in one block...ReplyDelete
Flower shop is definitely a plus, but for some families, so is the lawyer's office.ReplyDelete
A florist, lawyer and funeral home...seems like a one-stop for everything street. I like the humor in this post, William.ReplyDelete
Nice to be able to get everything done in the same area I guess.ReplyDelete
Convenient for those lawyers who drive clients into oblivion.ReplyDelete
You nailed it, William, and gave me a smile. Thank you!ReplyDelete
Interesting observation, William. ;)ReplyDelete
Interesting, I would think the florist would be popular in that location considering the neighbors.ReplyDelete
@Mari: that is true.
@Kay: you're welcome.
@EG: I thought so.
@Bill: they would be.
