Second: 308 N. Barstow St
This one was special for me at the time because it was the block with our studio's location, there under the drugstore sign. That was Saeryn Studios. Saeryn was the beginning of my Eau Claire endeavor, that ultimately led me to the Then & Now Concept. Across the street is now a single story, boring brick building. Its sometimes fun and sad to imagine the changes that Eau Claire has went through, not necessarily for the better, either.
The Mona Lisa really stands out to me. One week I put the art display piece we had printed of it, and put it in the display window. It always stopped passer-bys instantly when they saw that they were walking by a photo of what they had just walked past, present and past.
