Coffeehouse

Still in the Old City section of downtown, still in black and white, it's time to look up toward the skies. Not to spot Santa's flying reindeer, or to take note of the winter solstice, but to see the biggest cup of coffee in Knoxville.

This huge painting still graces the side of the Atelier Building on Jackson Avenue which used to host the JFG Coffeehouse. The coffee house has closed, replaced by a design studio, but the artwork lives on.

Well I think a design studio is a good fit, at least they won't hurt the old artwork. I love this.
There is an old coffee sign and Dr. Pepper sign downtown that I want to photograph. I always try as we speed by on the interstate, but unsuccessfully so far,lol.

I love your black and white photos. I hadn't seen the coffee cup before and am glad it has survived.

Great Knoxville pictures. We don't get downtown much--so it's good to see that some of the 'old' things are still there!!! We go to St. John's Cathedral on occasion --which we really enjoy!
Hugs,
