Monochrome Monday – Bike Stop Cafe

I didn’t go in or venture further than this shot here but I love how in historic St. Charles, Missouri they have converted old (and some historical) buildings into modern shops and restaurants.  When you enter these places you can see some of the original bits like exposed brick and wooden flooring and really narrow steps.  Now where these bikes outside because someone had ridden them here or were they there for decorative purposes or something else?  I have no idea!

  1. I think old buildings have such a great look and nobobdy is going to build them the same way again. It is great to see them repurposed like this. Nice bikes. They look ride-able.

    Love old buildings! I had friends who lived in a refurbished warehouse. The brick walls, the open ceilings and the personality of the place… made you want to just hug it! Nice picture!

    It’s always good to hear of a town that renovates old buildings and doesn’t bulldoze them in favor of another glass & steel structure or, worse yet, a strip mall. The old buildings have character that their replacements never will.

  4. The composition is brilliant! In the Netherlands, any unlocked bikes are in danger of being stolen 😀 (my bike was stolen twice and they were locked!!)
