Yesterday afternoon we were privileged to attend a celebration of the life of Patricia Salmond, late owner of the “Urban Empire” store and well-known and well-loved Drive diva.
There was a very good turnout of family, friends, and Drive characters to say their farewells. Thanks to everyone who helped arrange this lovely and loving event.
On the negative side, it was sad to hear that the owner of the building in which “Urban Empire” flourished has essentially locked out Ms. Salmond’s daughters and they have had to abandon the stock of zany goods still in the store. Shame.
