It now warehouses a collection of industrial sewing machines.
When I came to work one day I noticed a large hand-painted sign on the pole in front of me. The pole is too far to the left to be in the painting. But the sign read "Paint Marathon Today".

But a fast thinking couple on a tandem bicycle rode past this sign, coming towards me on this street. As they passed me, I could hear them chanting "GO PAINT GO! GO PAINT GO!"
