The above photo gives the false illusion that Greensboro is a sleepy, western saloon town. It was taken from Spring Garden Street, behind the old train depot. The building with the faded Security Van Lines advertisement dates to 1890. The advertisement really adds to Greensboro's vintage charm. Wouldn't it be great for someone to get a grant to refresh the paint job, using the same font.
The front of the Security Van Lines building faces Barnhardt Street and houses The WORX. The WORX is an eating establishment that bills itself as a place where "Bistro Meets Pub." The tall clump of dry grass in the foreground hints that summer is fleeting. Another sign that summer is winding down is the fact that tonight is the last First Friday before Labor Day and before public school resumes. We hope to see you downtown. If you are in town, remember that LeBauer Park is scheduled to open on Monday. If you are on the northern end of town, you could swing by and check on the progress.
