Facade


The downtown area has changed a lot 
since I moved to Indianapolis. Buildings have been torn down,
restored, and renewed. Many have been constructed
and many are being built now. 
This building, in the southeast quadrant
of the downtown area, near Virginia Avenue 
and Washington Street, has seen better days. 
Its owners have worked hard to clean it up and to make it 
another of the restored gems in its neighborhood - 
and they have done it with humor, a facade of the past 
reflecting the era of its surroundings 
while remaining its own 1960s or so self.
