  1. Wohl getan (well done), as usual, Joerg. Having nearly exhausted my rusty German, I recall passing Bill’s often when we lived nearby. Now situated far across Evanston, I am intrigued to see the formerly plain side wall bearing a bright mural. The slight vignetting (shading) of the corners of the picture could be a tech artifact of a very-wide lens, but it reminds me of a trend (or fad?) among some 1930s and 1970s-90s photogs. Making black & white prints by hand, they dodged the center to shade the corners, trying to increase visual emphasis on the main subject by muting distractions.
