No Parking in Driveway

Winsted, Connecticut

An old Elks Lodge—or maybe Eagles?—undergoing renovation. I couldn't make out the shadow image of the lodge initials, further up on the building, even more faded than the no parking shadow letters. Hazy but strong sunlight gave this corner of a modest poured-concrete building nearly a monumental feeling. I'll be interested to see what emerges after transformation.

Carl, that would be the 'Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Lodge Number 844' at 75 High Street, in Winsted.

Left front corner of the building, I'd guess, judging by the picture on their Web site.

Now, why didn't I think of just looking it up?
