The last time I was in town, I walked around my old neighborhood--Bevo.
In the stretch of the neighborhood where all the street names turn German--Gertrude, Dresden, etc.--sits a fairly innocuous street named Cologne.
I don't know why, but this small house with an adjacent storefront really caught my eye. Maybe it was the matching green-glazed brick courses at the bottom. The window on the storefront reads "Cologne Cafe, Air Conditioned". Was this once a bar and grill? It would appear so.
The city is littered with the remnants of neighborhood commerce. They each tell a story about their respective neighborhoods. Does any reader know the story behind this one?
