Wellworth Cleaners (Dead 2003)
Originally uploaded by Look In The Tunk.

Aw, the Wellworth Cleaners on Jefferson Ave in Newport News, VA. I loved, loved, loved this Shirt Laundriers mural on the wall there.

Wellworth went out of business (without telling anyone apparently, up until last year people’s dry cleaning was still in the store) in 2003, and in 2004 some bastards painted over the Mural. Those bastards!!!

I took this pic in 2002, and in 2004 I printed one out and gave it to my Art History teacher. She thought it was cute.

I also added two pics from a shut down Lowe’s hardware store in Suffolk, VA today.
