Artful Adventures Stroll Challenge - Day 22 - Old

Todays stroll challenge word is: Old. Most of the buildings in my neighbourhood are from the 1920's or more more recent, so finding something "old" that appealed to me was a bit of a challenge. What I found was an engraved stone on the face of an old building that was originally built as a Kresge's. I remember these stores from when I was a child - mostly for their lunch counter, and ice cream soda's… Do you remember those? It was a special treat to be taken for one! The Kresge's in my 'hood was opened in June 1926, and I found a picture of the opening poster online, which I've incorporated into the journal page. Hummm, now I have a hankering for an ice cream soda (I probably haven't had one since I was about 10!)
