South Main Street, Janesville, 1912
Not much happening in the art department here,although I was pleased to get a state award for my paper collage of Haitian women. Usually we just get a little paper certificate, but this time there was also a big ribbon, the sort of thing I have not seen since my days in 4-H. I hung it on the refrigerator. Why not?
Tonight I plan to go to the life drawing studio in Whitewater, something I enjoy very much. I missed a couple weeks because we were gone in Colorado, but it's time to try and get some routines going again.
Today I stopped at Carousel Consignment and found this old postcard of South Main Street here in Janesville. I digitally repaired a couple worn spots just to get a better idea of what it looked like when it was sent almost a hundred years ago. Actually, the street doesn't look all that different today, although the building on the left has been replaced by a modern bank. The right side of the street as shown here hasn't changed much at all.
