Photo Hunt: Dodgy

By JG
Check cashing place

Although Eagle Rock likes to emphasize its small town neighborhood feel, nice restaurants and fun boutiques, it’s not all young professional families and graying-at-the-temple hipsters. It’s still rough around the edges with a number of ugly strip malls and businesses that some might consider dodgy, like this check cashing place — the kind of place that charges such a high rate of interest it’s hard to get ahead, for the people who live paycheck to paycheck and can never scrape together enough money for a bank account (ironically, until recently, our local Chase was just a few storefronts down). There are lots more of these in poorer neighborhoods, but we don’t escape them altogether.

    yup – these places are indeed dodgy – it is terrible the interest that they with hold from those cheques! ARGH

    I wondered where you’d go with this week’s theme since your pictures generally show such a lovely spot!

    Have a super weekend.

    Dodgy indeed!
    They seem to be multiplying these days… I guess that is a sign of the times.
    Happy Hunting~

    Dodgy business indeed. And rent-to-own places too. 🙁

    For a dodgy place, it sure looks bright and like it has nothing to hide! :O

    I always wondered about these sorts of places. They are a dying breed in Australia. Not many people get paid by cheque anymore.
