In New York City, we have a lot of old buildings that have the remains of hand painted advertisements. In this “modern” age, we have tarps that are painted by machine that get stretched in it’s place. I think I’ll snap a picture of the remains of interesting advertisements when I come across them.
In this case, there is a Man working next to the blue “Direct from the Manufacturer” painted place card. It’s so faded that it looks like a Pencil sketch.
