In a city of characters, the late Frank G. Whitson was a classic.If he knew you, he wouldn't let you leave his Read Street antiques shop without hearing one of his stories. Many of these tales were not fit for a family newspaper.The often irascible Mr. Whitson had a reputation for treating customers badly. Some people didn't make it past the front door. Mr. Whitson chased them out.His shop's door mat said, "Go Away." But those who knew him didn't.About 250 people paid their respects to Whitson last night at the Richard Opfer auction house in Timonium.
