A blog about Hudson, New York

Sic Transit Gloria Tuesday

A shop-window display for Valentine’s Day with an appropriately dark if not necromantic streak (appropriate for Hudson that is) can be viewed at Gail Peachin’s antiques shop, Fern (610½ Warren Street). Here Peachin has strung together dozens of anonymous old photo-album snapshots of couples, turning them into an original tribute to love, friendship (and, just suggestively, the way of all flesh).  They make you wonder, not only about love and death, but if people were better looking back then. “No,” Fern neighbor David Dew Bruner said, “They were all just better groomed.” –Scott Baldinger
