When we moved to increasingly trendy East Passyunk Avenue four years ago, we were delighted by the great classic shops still in the mix: The King of Jeans. Frankie’s on the Avenue. Tom’s Prime Meats.
Then, one by one, they disappeared.
“DON’T IT ALWAYS SEEM TO GO….”
Still, one of our favorite storefronts – A Man’s Image – remained, its eye-catching sign visible a block away. And, oh, those windows, lovingly updated for every occasion….
(Windows decorated for Valentine’s Day 2016, top and bottom left, and an “everyday” sale window from fall, 2015.)
That’s why we mourned when the “Going Out of Business” signs appeared in March.
