Please support the businesses featured on this site, and please be sure to mention how you heard about them. You have been able to enjoy these photographs because the proprieters of these establishments were kind enough to let me photograph, lugging my view camera, tripod, and other equipment in the midst of where they were trying to serve their customers.
