Dot-Com & Gone

Thomas Reynolds Gallery on Pine and Fillmore opened an exposition of photographs by Jean Collier Hurley this evening. The show chronicles the various help-wanted signs in the windows of the shops on Fillmore during the dot-com boom of 2000 when it seemed no retailer was safe from having their staff cherry-picked by the SOMA madness and runs through February 2nd.

The photos are quite interesting and from a collector's viewpoint different from most since damage to the negatives make each photo a 1/1 original with no copies to follow.

Mostly neighborhood folks in attendance, but one guest was a delight to see back on Fillmore. Iris Fuller, the owner of Fillamento, the store that revived the shopping scene on Fillmore, had dropped in from her home in Petaluma. Could a new Fillamento be in the offing? We can only hope.
