Coffee Tins All in a Row

If you are of a certain age, you’ll remember in your Dad’s or Granddad’s basement, garage, or back shed workshop, the rows and rows of old coffee tins, mayonnaise jars, paper bags, and old metal cans full of various nuts, bolts, nails, screws, and all kids of metal parts.

Just north of the Locust Street bridge along the east side of the Milwaukee River, once stood the River Colony.  These shards of coffee cups, bottles, plates are some of the very few items left of this very unique neighborhood.
