Small Business Saturday


There are a couple reasons why this storefront is unlikely to be in Agincourt. Perhaps I love the image because it challenges my defaults.

The raised entry—just those three steps that appear to be more than standard seven inch risers—is outside my experience in the Red River Valley. Here in the flatland, those conditions didn’t occur often enough to set precedent. I can imagine more steps or none at all. Three more steps would permit light and ventilation into the basement.

There’s also the matter of stone, which could have come from farther afield than the geologically challenged natural resources of Fennimore county. Time to reconsider the sub-stratum.

As it is, however, this image is too good to pass by.
