Between Seneca & Cayuga Lakes in the Finger Lake region of New York State is the town of Waterloo, named after the Belgian town where Napoleon didn’t have such a good day in 1815. My buddy Isaac, who I met in Yellowstone last summer, was traveling from Ithaca to Buffalo and shot this for me, almost incredulously.

Hi, Frank-

Attached is a photo I  took in La Conner, Washington last year. I thought you might find it usable for your blog. I apologize for the tilt. I have subscribed to your blog for a year and really enjoy your work.

Best regards,
Fred King

Thanks Fred! Don’t apologize for the tilt! Without it, how would it go down the hatch?

Fred says: Currently 58 years old. I’m a grandfather. I have a chronic illness that has not allowed me to work the past few years. Lots of meds, no cure. Love photography as a hobby and love to write, as therapy of sorts. The blogs I subscribe to and run across are truly inspiring. There is just so much imagery being captured and shared around the world. Visual imagery as well as that evoked in writing. I’m humbled to play a small part in this community.

Hello – Love your blog, a fan here in Worcester, MA. My favorite drinking establishment recently had an ad for Narragansett Beer, which is making a comeback in New England, painted on the outside of the bar. I also included a shot of the front. The place features an authentic 1950’s diner and two bars, upstairs and down. The mural would be on the right side. – Thanks, LB Worm

Thank you LB. Great mural!

Then and Now, from Signs to Websites.

Started by Ogilvie Stanford in 1879 with the help of Rockwell Gager. Ithaca Sign Works produced cloth, tin and wooden signs; novelties like yard sticks, match safes, knife sharpeners, fly swatters, and spare tire covers. They printed or painted such items as advertisements for other companies all over the country. – Ithaca Sign Works

To the Editor: NY Times –

The sign uncovered at Reade Street and West Broadway in downtown New York City and described in Paul Goldberger’s May 14 appraisal of “Signs of Lost Times” may have “confounded city historians for years,” but it was clear to me the moment I saw it. “Brush Up Business With Paint, Paste, Paper, Push” is an advertisement for outdoor advertising itself — an ad for ads, if you will. In other (more modern) words: “Improve your business with outdoor billboards” (which are painted, pasted and papered). Why ‘Push’? For alliterative purposes only. “Push” means “sell.” Which is what outdoor advertising has been doing ever since, and very well at that. ROBERT REAUME President, Outdoor Advertising Association of Canada Toronto, May 19, 1994
