D.S. Freeman is barely visible on the brick storefront of the building at the corner of Spring Garden and Chapman Streets. The store has had many iterations since its general store days. For many years, It was David Sheppard's music shop. Instruments could be purchased, restrung, and repaired on the main level and, upstairs, musicians gave lessons. Just about anybody on the east coast who was an old-time musician, knew about this shop.
Today, the store is Freeman's Grub and Pub and is operated by the same people who own Jake's Billiards, just down the street. It has a reputation for serving creative, upscale bar food. * If these rains keep up, we'll all be seeking shelter. Freeman's could be just the place to stay warm, dry, and fed.
Based on all the wires overhead, in the neighborhood, we're assuming good Wi-Fi connectivity. Seriously, you don't notice the wires nearly as much when you are in the area. As most of them are on the opposite of the street, they made a striking frame for this photo.
