The tram, having disonnected from its toast-rack trailer, moves from one line to the other at Ramsey so that it can return south to Douglas. The trailer was moved releasing its brake and letting gravity carry it past the points so that it can be reconnected to the (now) rear of the tram.
A good old-fashioned business (Ed Smith’s Stencil Works), with a good old-fashioned hand-painted sign whose landlord is selling the building—perhaps as a result of the recession which was particularly affecting the southern states when I visited them. The business itself seems still to be operating, as its website attests.
Another hand-painted sign outside a Protestant church in Little Haiti in Miami, this time written exclusively in French with the exception of the words ‘Church’ and ‘Residence’. I wonder what happens on Tuesday and Saturday mornings’ ‘Service de jeûne et prière’ (fasting and prayer service—how can you have a ‘service’ of fasting?!). It’s interesting to note that they have included the circumflex over the capital ‘U’ in ‘jeûne’ and left out the grave accent in ‘prière’: the circumflex is necessary to avoid misinterpretation of the word as meaning something to do with ‘youth’.
