On Foot – Allentown, PA – A New Chapter

The sight struck me, though I don’t know why at all, so I took their picture, while the store owner next door swept his entrance-way and looked at me with suspicious curiosity. I realize most people don’t take pictures of books stacked against a paper-hidden store window, but I didn’t feel the need to explain my impulse to collect sights that might not be around the next time I walk along this street…
