Over two years ago I made a visit to Hamilton, Ontario, my hometown, and one of things I did while I was there was walk down Barton St., a street that I remember as vibrant from my childhood but that is now all boarded-up stores. This is one of the photos I took that day:
I titled it “Voo” because that’s all I could make out from the sign. But as I discovered the other day when a friend sent me a link to a video on the Hamilton Spectator‘s Web site, it was actually a pharmacy called Littlewood’s, and though it’s been closed for almost fifty years the contents are untouched. Paul Wilson from the paper takes a walk around inside, and the result is fascinating. I totally recommend that you watch the footage:
I so wish I could have gone inside.
