Omaha's Old Market: Diversity in Signage

I took these a few days ago around the Old Market. I planned on doing a people thread but I found these signs to be more interesting at the time.

Enjoy!

Looking west from 11th and Harney. Orpheum Tower in the background.


In the Old Market along Howard St.


Lotus: A women's clothing store


Drastic Plastic: One of the record stores in the Old Market


Zio's Pizza: A New York style pizza place. It's one of my favorite places to eat even though I'm much more a Chicago pizza fan


No Biking: They must have shot the rider


Asian. Mongolian. A lion? Maybe it's on the menu


O'Connors: Site of a personal, drunken mishap (More to come)


Hollywood Candy: A new place in the Market. It used to be offices


Stretch of the Old Market along 13th between Howard and Jackson


13th St. Coffee: They have an awesome pic of the new Pope slamming this huge stein of beer before he was the Pope


Nicola's: Haven't been here either. Nice patio though.


Sign, sign, everywhere a sign. And amazingly a parking spot


Ted & Wally's: THE BEST ICE CREAM ON EARTH!! They make all sorts of flavors. My favorite is Guiness. Yes the beer. They have all sorts of alcohol and dessert flavored ice creams. On the weekends there's lines around the building.


I just really like this picture. The towers in the roles of feminine and masculine


Stop for Tiques and More


Retro Rocket: There were a bunch of these spray painted around the Market. The rockets made a trail and pointed the way to the store. I followed


Side entrance to many Old Market establishments


Making my way towards the alley


Aww refreshing


Breezing into the alley


Live long and prosper


Retro Rocket


My house in the alley's terminated vista


Omaha Clay Works: Another surprise I never saw before


When my pics persuade you to move to Omaha, look here


Nomad Lounge: A fancy place to hang out. In between the leather couched seating areas are mini art galleries


The Passport Restaurant: Another fancy place to dine. This part of the Market is kind of exclusive



1101 Jackson: New high-end condos in the Old Market


U/C jLofts: Another high end condo project that will block the lovely view of my building


Ted & Wally's: DID I MENTION IT HAS THE BEST ICE CREAM ON EARTH


A non-Satanic antique shop


Iron against the Market



A cool private residence in the Old Market


Windows. A favorite subject of mine to shoot


One last look at the Passport


1101 Jackson windows. No doubt a great view from within


Smoke break on Jackson St.


Get a tatto. Get a piercing. It's the American thing to do


Sam & Louie's Pizza: A new New York pizza place. I love the big garage door that opens up to the street


Vignettes: Of course I'd have to do this in black and white


Fairmont and fair skies


And stopping at the grocery store before heading home.
Until next time...

Those brick-lined buildings are lovely. Something we don't have where I live.
