The Marco Polo (MP) Restaurant in East Hartford CT is my theme for Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Located on Burnside Avenue at the east end of an 'S' curve, this iconic landmark takes me back to my old hometown. Even though we now live an hour away, I haven't been here for decades.
I found an old washed out color print of me from 1977. Back then, I ate here more than any other restaurant in the Hartford area - the best warm breadsticks with kosher salt baked onto the underside (crying out for real butter - never could lose weight at the MP :)
I imagine that the pizza and Chicken Marsala has not changed...the original photo was printed on that 1970s textured paper and is not in great shape. So B&W and sepia edits still include the shadowy apéritif. Breadsticks anyone?
