This photograph feels really strange to me. It’s because the time is around 4 in the afternoon and for some unaccountable reason Charles Street is virtually deserted. I stood in the middle of the road for quite a long time taking it. It’s doubtful this scene will be repeated often.
Sailors take warning.
A western boot and hat store smack in the middle of a blue blood Bostonian neighborhood? Yup partner there is one. It’s called Helen’s Leather Shop, 110 Charles Street. Emine here “womans” the counter and likes to get her picture taken. It didn’t seem too much of a hardship so I was happy to oblige.
They did a good job for me putting a leather handle on my camera bag and who knows if I’m ever in a yippee yi yo ki yea mood I might ever get me a pair of boots for my size 14 tootsies.
PS I had originally written “mans” the counter but Emine let me know in no uncertain terms “womans” was correct.
