This is one of the many Bendix Home Laundry fading ads I’ve captured. A young family from Guyana was kind enough to let me climb out of their window onto an adjacent roof for this shot.
Ironically, and with much delight, the Fading Ad Gallery was located directly across the street from this billboard & painted sign @ 880 Bedford and 679 Myrtle. I wonder what are the GPS coordinates?
This also is one of the many MACK signs still intact throughout the city, including Griffon Shears & Thread Mills – also featured on this site.

I get by (or at least have a better chance of passing on my genetic material) with a little help from my friends. Natural selection isn’t prescient and survival of the fittest doesn’t necessarily mean survival of the strongest and fiercest.
