Zen Monday: #197

I don't know.

That's why I post it on Monday. I'm hoping maybe you know.

White noise?

One of those "lived of quiet desperation," maybe?

Speedway said...

"Lives," dammit, "lives." I'm kinda desperate in the a.m. so who knows what'll come out of my fingers.

Another police cover-up?

That little circular hole makes it more enticing!.

Virginia said...

What a great photograph!

Steven said...

Send someone to figure out how to wash these windows.

Where is this located?

Petrea Burchard said...

Anon, it's on the north side of Colorado Blvd. near Hill Avenue.

Petrea Burchard said...

I hope I'm remembering that correctly. I think it's in the window of the car dealership just west of Hill.

Petrea Burchard said...

That's not it. I'm going to do some google street view searching to see if I can find it. It's on the north side of Colorado, for sure.

Deb said...

Did you?

Petrea Burchard said...

Anon: northeast corner of Colorado and Berkeley.

LOLfromPasa said...

I can't believe this but I can confirm it is the old Buick dealership from back in the 60's. I worked there for 3 months as a secretary. Amazing.

Petrea Burchard said...

That got my heart racing.

Once I found a wooden box beneath the Colorado Street Bridge. I posted a photo of it, perhaps on a Zen Monday. The police contacted me and asked me to lead them to it.

I have a wild imagination. Of course I think the "send help" sign is facetious or I wouldn't have posted it, but what if...?

LOLfromPasa said...

Me again....reference comment above about Buick dealership! I really should have said 'I am pretty sure'. The building looks right but those additional arches to the rear seem vague in my memory. Hummmm.

Petrea Burchard said...

Look at street view here, LOL

There was a dealership on the northwest corner here. I can't remember if it was Buick or not. It's been closed for a while. Recession. The windows are not as interesting.

LOLfromPasa said...

Thanks for the link...had a look and I am sure my memory has failed me. Initially, I felt pretty confident I knew that building. 'Send Help.' Ha Ha!

Ms M said...

Maybe it WAS a car dealership, and they used to sell Pontiacs and Saturns, and perhaps in earlier years, DeSotos....

Prem said...

mysterious... hope they got help! for whatever reason. :D

I hope you weren't too late.

Susan Campisi said...

Nope. I'm with you: I don't know.

Petrea Burchard said...

We should stop here. I shouldn't even comment. If you read all the comments through Susan's it's like a little story, with a beginning, middle and end.

Three Mondays from now will be Zen Monday #200. To celebrate, we're going to have a contest that everyone can enter, and everyone gets to vote on the winner. And there will be prizes!

You are helping them...cheers.

Trish said...

Been a busy few weeks, am just catching up on posts.

I think Ms M is correct...think it was a Pontiac dealer, then Saturn, then nothing. Buick dealer was further out on Colorado near Fedco (eventually turned into the gazunta Target) in the last 20 years.

My only thought was "Send Help, I'm a 4x8' sheet of plywood in a rounded archway, I don't have a clue how I'm going to cover it all!".
