Some Signs

Just a little more of yesterday's chilly afternoon walk. Grand & humble markers.

The old Lascoff sign, hanging outside the boarded up store, and one of the mortar and pestles:


Neil's Coffee Shop

Metallic Lathers Union sign (with clock!)

Holmes Protection Services, founded in 1858.

The great thing about Holmes Protection is that it is always available for almost every purpose in almost any quantity. One man or ten men. patrol service or private house service, payroll guardianship, business protection or country home work; you can quickly secure just that service you seek and get it at a cost that made one client ejaculate "Is THAT all you charge?"
(NY Times, March 25, 1921)
