  1. Indeed….lately people become more aware of the importance to preserve ‘old’ things! And i am glad too. Already to much historie is erased, sadly enough.

    Have a nice weekend,

  2. There are many ghost signs in the upstate New York area, mostly for Uneeda Biscuit and the like; I’ve been very lucky to photograph many of these properties, and it’s a fascinating study of vintage advertising and artwork.
