I know not the Bernheimer Building and really don't understand why one side of it would be painted with funny pictures ... but to each his own. Do they make shoes in the Bernheimer Building. Maybe they make shoes to throw at lousy politicians. If so, I'll buy a pair!

Weird and wonderful. Nicely composed photo with the woman in blue in a perfect spot!

Jacob - I don't know either. I read the name on the front, probably only an old dilapidated building...

Well, one has to admit it is colorful and makes for an interesting and speculative photograph!

Hope your day is going well!

Do they have Shoe Trees in Europe? It's a crazy phenomenon in this country. I saw my first one along a very empty road in the country. I'll have to find it and post it. Then I read about it. Sometimes they use telephone wires, so that's what this graffiti is referencing. Nobody knows how it got started.

This is soooo cool! Fabulous find, I wonder what it looks like when the store blinds are up?
