My grandfather, Albert (Israel) Adelson, painted that sign. If you look at the bottom right, you can still see the “Concord Co.” logo. My cousin Glenn still runs Concord Painting, an offshoot started by his father, my uncle Sherman. My father, Marvin and uncles Ted & Sherman were all great tradesmen in a craft fading slowly into history. Thank you for preserving this image. My father’s work still appears all over New York city as an enduring tribute, but seeing it online makes it a little easier to share with the world.

Thank you Randy for sharing your family history with us! Where are some other Concord Co signs that you know are extant? I’ll document those (if I haven’t already). All the best to you and your family and thanks again for visiting.
