Neighborhoods: Time for the 10-year paint job at Washtenaw Dairy
But every 10 years or so, the place needs a paint job. This decade's new decor is tan paint on the exterior walls, set off by just-the-right-red on doors and windows. On Friday, in the mid-day sun, Smith and employee Rick Wyniemko were applying the new look.
Since it was established in 1934, says Smith, the Washtenaw Dairy has worn several shades —including mustard, purple, silver and white. Otherwise, not much has changed at the Old West Side gathering spot for conversation, coffee, donuts and ice cream.Photos by Julie Wiernik 1.
