The Love Block
This is a partial view of the west side of the Albia square storefronts. Having lived in Centerville for a number of years, I’ve been interested in small towns and their changing businesses and old buildings. We drive through this quaint town numerous times and I snapped a few pictures for reference.
What caught my eye were the shapes and red and green colors. Usually the signage attracts my interest too, and while painting it I noticed the name “Love Block” at the top of one of the buildings. Many times there is a date on top from when they built it, or a name. As times are changing, with the move away from rural towns, I chose to document these buildings and remember that life once revolved around them.
