Night on Water Street

This photo is from the archives - the Bridge Cafe at Water and Dover Streets claims to be the oldest continuous business in the city, having opened as a grocery in 1794.  It's famously known for being a brothel in the 19th century, but is currently a restaurant and bar.

Here it is in 2006, on a rare night when the street wasn't lined with cars.

  1. Very nice shot. Black and white serves the scene well.

  2. Thank you, David.  I took color shots as well, but they just didn't capture the emptiness of the street.

  3. What a great photo! I've never been to the Bridge Cafe and need to go, it's been on my list of things to do forever.
