historic. lost meaning -by theStephALA

historic main street.  historic district.  historic…historic…historic…. what counts as historic really?  everything is in a perpetual state of decay so where do we draw the line between something that is historic and something that is just old?

historic

some places and towns that are deemed “historic”, frequently are nothing more than inhabited movie sets with carefully refurbished exteriors made to resemble the past.  “historic” is a design theme.  it is a prop.  it has lost its true meaning.
