Penny for your Thoughts

I leaned down to pick up a penny, and when I looked up I saw this interesting staircase. So tell me, what do you think we would find up there?

The person who dropped a penny?

Oh this certainly has that film noir feel. Maybe the private detective's office is up that flight of stairs and he's working late on a case, with an ashtray full of unfiltered Camel butts, not to mention the one dangling from his mouth. His girl Friday, Louise is working over time in her wool straight skirt,seamed hose and pompadour hairdo, hoping to make a little extra money to feed the baby at home. She has an understanding babysitter who is willing to stay extra hours so she can work.

They are just about to break the case.......

Mr. Earl.

Flo's Beauty Shoppe. There is no identifying sign for Flo's because she does stuff on the cheap. There are those old fashioned hair dryers (like football helmets) around and various bottles of bleach and jars of goo. For a vintage, "do" and the latest gossip, visit Flo's.....up the stairs.

Come up to the lab, we'll see what's on the slab.

Dixie Jane: Jars of Goo - love it.

The stairway leads to the office where Glimpses of South Pasadena is produced, a room with a couple of typists and a linotype operator, all working away as the editor seeks inspiration from the dewy prints still wet from their recent bath in the darkroom tub.

At the top of the stairs, a sign: "Wished Granted. Open door, and move into the light. Be careful what you wish for."

An apartment in the past.

Did you put the penny in your shoe?
A video artist is up there recording people who pick up pennies.

A trail of more pennies leading you a room filled with old heirlooms and forgotten treasures :)

An empty room, except for the piano.
