20040902 De Lauer’s
Originally uploaded by Tom Spaulding

Today started with a bummer of a headline: 101-year-old Oakland newsstand to close tonight.

Coupled with the news that Cody’s closed down, and I was feeling real down on the future of print here in the East Bay.

Yeah, I was all set to grab the camera and go down to De Lauer’s to take some last minute pics to document the passing of another landmark… but keep hope alive, said the man, and hope responds back.

Oakland newsstand to stay open, for now, after support pours in
Nice! I still plan on taking some pics of the still-alive-n-kickin’ De Laurer’s and buy something. I’m not sure what, but at least a little sumthin’ sumthin’.
