No Escaping the Present

I lived here 15 years before I discovered the 1630 Club, just doors down the street from where I live. But Blissville is like that. It gives up its treasures slowly.

There, underneath the American Legion Post 1630, is a bar with vintage 1950s paneling. Photos of local heros decorate the walls. Some date back to the first World War. A juke box offers the songs from my parent's era. And a Heinekin costs $1, a whisky $2.

And behind the bar stands an autographed photo of Kelly Ripa, who once came in for a drink.

This picture has a great sense of chiaroscuro, which makes me want to return to it again and again. Strong graphics, very compelling!
