Enslen’s Super Market

Any time life takes me to Washington Courthouse, Ohio I sneak into downtown for a peak at this old advertising piece. It faces an alley across the street from the county courthouse and promotes Enslen’s Super Market.

It’s just one of my many fun quirks. At least that’s what I say about my compulsively revisiting some of the same spots over and again.

This last trip through in mid May found me there on a Saturday morning when the sky was striking and the light was nice. While a shadow falls over part of the wall, I sort of like the way the shadow and light play against the colors.

It tends to look a little different every time I drive by and I’m always interested in how something like brick and paint can take on new character with changes in the weather.

Is there a place you revisit time and again?

  1. I often shopped at Enslen’s Grocery, back in the day! I loved that store, and seeing Mr. Enslen.
    During the blizzard of 1978, and without any electricity, it was the only store open!

    The Courtview Restaurant (now Capuana’s Courtview) was also open (without electricity) and managed to provided candlelight meals, and a hot cup of coffee by using their gas stove. Those were the good ‘ole days, that you hear about!

  2. I love all the old mining towns around SW Colorado. Some have gotten overgrown with condos and crawl with tourists, but I don’t mind visiting in the shoulder seasons. There’s a fun hot springs north of Ouray called Orvis that I like to visit. Haven’t been in a while.
