The Restrooms at City Hall
In the collection of sign shots there are some pretty obscure shots. This is one of the more obscure images, the set of restrooms attached to City Hall on Main Street. This part of the building is very unremarkable architecturally and looks just like a blank brick wall. However the photographer inadvertently made the image into a classic art photograph with the two older gentlemen sitting on the bench, the sign in the foreground matching the flag pole coming off of the roof and the father and daughter on the other bench. The more I look at the photograph, the more I like it.
