  8. Tools of a trade. None that I've ever used. Very time telling.

  9. Not quite sure what it means, but it's interesting. And it "fits"the location. Love the brick and the assortment of items on the wall.

  10. WOW! «Louis» hasn't seen one of those Farmer-Stockman signs in probably 30 years - and then on a farm in the Texas Panhandle. Not something one would expect to see in Noo Yawk City!
    ;-)

  11. Rosie and Jack seem to be getting along well. I have witnessed similar scenes with my kitties and have to wonder just who is the dominant kitty in that situation!

    That wall has so much character. It looks like it belongs out in the country somewhere on an old country store.

  12. That is one fascinating wall. One forgets that parts of Manhattan were once farmland. Thanks for the history lesson--and it's a great shot!

  13. I would expect to see that on a barn wall here in WV, but in NYC? Amazing!

  14. Love the image you created. Don't know why it's hanging there, but who cares, because it provided you with a great shot.

  15. Love the earth tones. A quick search on Farmer-Stockman pulled a bunch of results having to do with insurance (presumably for farmers) and a magazine or periodical of some sort.

  16. This picture could have been taken last night where we saw Willie Nelson. However, it looks too clean...

  17. That is a curious sign...curious that it is there in NYC. It sounds like something that would be found in a rural area.

    Love old brickwork.

  18. That wall is fascinating! I wonder if it is legit (a real old timey place) or just a retro fancy?

    And the sign: I don't understand the sign.

    Re your comment about the low-security prison...the tables and chairs committed no offense. I do believe that the fence is to protect diners sitting at those tables and on those chairs from any drunken bums that might stumble down the street...or perhaps tea partyers on one of their rages! :-)

  19. Great shot. I love the old brick and the whole scene.

  20. The old tools on the brick wall look great. :)

  21. I wouldn't think there'd be too many cattle ranches in New York City. Even back in the day. But it fits in with the rest of the collection I guess.

  22. Great color and texture in this one, and the old tools have so many stories to tell.

  23. Love the shape of the wood tools against the brick. Very camera worthy.

  24. My dad has treasures like this on display outside. So do a lot of other New Englanders. Solves a great big storage issue when the wife tosses the good stuff onto the lawn. Maybe a similar practice at work here?
