Advance Shade & Blind
This shop located just south of downtown peoria was originally opened in the early 1940’s and enjoyed 40 years of business until finally closing it’s doors in 1983. It has stood here in this disheveled state ever since. The “warehouse district” rejuvenation project hasn’t quite made it this far yet, but it is getting close.
My first attempt at taking a new shot and making it vintage and retro – killing the color saturation and adding a lot of grain. It was super super sunny and bright, so had to kill the highlights and whites as well.
