Photo of the Week

dirty dicks

Dirty Dick's is a noir specialty store for all your private-dick (private-eye) paraphernalia: magnifying glasses, deer-stalker caps, fingerprinting powder, evidence containers, disguises, Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler novels, wrinkled trench coats, gun moll pin-ups, snub-nosed revolvers, etc.

Actually, I just made that up. This is a pub I passed by in London while on one of the walking tours. I didn't go inside (I did patronize a few other pubs), but I couldn't resist photographing this facade, which has so much character and such a charmingly alliterative name. Click it for a close up. It'll make you want a pint.



Danger! High Voltage!
