Remains of the Past

I love seeing the remains of old signs, painted on brick walls of buildings.  The kind that were painted 100-years ago, that have faded over the years, so only a ghost of the past remains.  The modern printed on plastic signs, will be done the moment the lease is up, no ghost to be see 100 years from now.  A loss for future generations.  


  1. I agree. I remember seeing a partial Wanamaker's wall ad in New York some years back. What a surprise.

  2. @mitchell - WOW!

    at our manayunk commuter train station, there is a faded ad for renting a horse & carriage. you have to know where to look to see it.

  3. I was a big JD drinker as a young man
    I can't abide it now x

    1. It is nasty stuff, I wouldn't use it to sanitize a bird cage.
