Entryways, old roads traveled once more. An early portfolio revisited on an autumn afternoon. I’ve been fascinated from my earliest exposure and before with what lies behind the door? Another world [one for you who know me this door is one I didn’t often take] visual stories of what is on the other side. Simplicity inviting you to create memories or fantasies. This Barbershop on main Street Manchester Connecticut. As a youth old enough to know about girls we’d go to Manchester for a movie, but really to stroll Main St. and see the “City Girls” for we were from Coventry a little farm town/bedroom community 15 or so miles east. Now across the street from the barber shop my friend Carl lives in elderly housing a converted elementary school. We still stroll main St. slower but still looking at the girls seeing how much has changed yet how everything is the same. The sweet allure of memory awakened by the simplicity of the image of the just right light transporting us between here and there.

So many of the old doorways in our city have been renovated to the new glass modern doors, not as interesting as the old fashion doors. You can still find a few but have to hunt for them.

It saddens me to hear Burlington to hear of Burlington’s architectural upgrade LOL. There is no history or mystery to the new glass doors. Manchester Ct. has continued to have an old Main St. despite the creeping architectural melanoma of the malls. It is easy to walk downtown there and let the mind wander through the past. enjoy pjc
