You can hardly read it, but the sign says Belk-Hudson. This is on the side of the Mellow Mushroom building downtown, originally the Maxwell Brothers Grocery. We have a Belk in town now, but apparently many years ago, there was a Belk-Hudson. Belk is the department store that bought out Parisian a few years ago.

Here's an old ghost sign on the back of the Drake Printers (click to see their cool neon sign)building downtown. "Parsons-Persons Motors" Sadly, I couldn't get the entire sign in the frame as it is mostly in an alley and blocked by a newer building. This is also the same building with this ghost sign on the other side.

Here's the view on the drive home this week - EVERY DAY...Seriously. It's rained every day this week. Yesterday's fare included deluge followed by sun - hello steam - followed by deluge, and repeat. Seems the same is on tap for today. Oh well, the downpours make for good Sunday napping. Hope you're having a restful weekend!

If posting around here doesn't pick up, I'll have to change the name to Tuscaloosa Tuesday Photo! Shame and a disgrace with no excuse other than, LIFE happens and frequently at the most inopportune times. So, with the photo well dry and the camera card empty, I submit an old postcard. Here's Broad Street - now University Blvd. - facing east toward the University of Alabama. The bank building from last week's post is in the center of the card. Click to enlarge for detail.
