Image of boards in storage
University Ave W, Saint Paul, MN, USA
A photo of some boards stacked in a small hallway of a local business. These boards used to be on the storefront on University Ave, but some time before this photo was taken on September 22, 2020, the boards were taken down and put into storage by the store owner.
The store owner explained to the photographer of this image that the boards were making it seem like the place was closed, and he needed to open up to make it more obvious that the store was open and inviting for customers. He did leave up a "Breonna Taylor" sign. He said that all the signs on his store were painted during the immediate aftermath of George Floyd's murder by some unknown teen girls. He didn't get their names. They just asked if they could paint the plywood boards as he was boarding up his store and he said yes.
