Hi Frank-

Saw your blog recently for the first time and took this picture on Friday.  It may not qualify as a good picture because of the angle. Maybe someone else can visit it.  I also attached a comparative view of pre-demolition. I can’t imagine how old the sign is.

Best,

-Valerie Landriscina

Dear Valerie-

The only way to tell the age of this ad is from finding out when the building that was demolished was originally built – first obscuring this image. My guess would be 1890-1900. The images are great. Would like to take a trip uptown and get some shots before it gets covered again. Thanks so much and glad you enjoy the blog.
