GLOBES MAPS MODELS
Here's the second installment of letters on bricks (here's number one). As mentioned in that first post, I love maps. And I like the idea that the Nystrom family business is making maps, globes, and models. This was taken on a Saturday or Sunday, so I think this building is still in operation, but just vacant for the day. Although after a quick search it appears that Nystrom is now owned by some conglomerate called Herff-Jones. In any case, there's something about this picture that seems optimistic instead of deserted to me. Like on Monday morning the good workers of Nystrom are going to pull into those spots and get back to making the maps, globes, and models that will maybe make one more American child be able to identify Canada on a map.
Also, today was guest post one out of three for me at the St. Louis CDPB. Watch me bounce back and forth across the 300 miles between our cities this week.
