This is NOT what gentrification looks like, part deux

this is the business, other side
this is a business
If you’re a frequenter here, you’ll remember the story of the nasty business that has popped up on North Lombard in NoPo. Well, things have evolved, as you can tell from the above photos.

Unfortunately today they were closed for business (that’s what it means when the tarp is down on the lean-to shack thing). When the tarp is up, that’s high falutin’ business talk for “crap sold here.” Yes, there’s now a business operating here. Or something is operating here. Junk and stuff seems to accumulate out front and I would assume that’s what they’re selling.

Don’t worry your sweet little heads though. The split log fence is still there. So is the battle-ship grey single-wide. And as you can tell, there’s a monster truck there now too. (The billboard is a bit more seasonal though. Yeah! Hot dogs!) Don’t get too excited about what appears to be the For Sale sign. It’s not. They just turn it around when they’re open, and on the other side is spray painted the name of the business. “DR Lockers.” Oh, that makes sense. It’s a doctor’s place. And for those who know me in real life, you can see how disturbing the last part of that name is to me…..
