Little Boxes on the Main Street

Main Street in Nassau, the Bahamas.

“Little boxes on the ‘main street.’
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,
Little boxes, little boxes,
Little boxes, all the same.
There’s a green one and a pink one
And a blue one, “brightly painted ones”
And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same.”
lyrics by Malvina Reynolds (1960)

    Thanks for the comments. The islands do certainly dress in more festive wear than where I live.

    I had to laugh at how perfectly the lyrics went with the picture.

    Looks like both Tillamook and certain parts of San Francisco.
