Classic Old Signage Revealed on Upper Broadway


The old signage for three small businesses was revealed recently on upper Broadway between 100th and 101st. The Flikr site for Eating in Translation nabbed these fine pictures of the gone-and-quite-forgotten Claire's, Lillian's corsets and blouses, and, my favorite, Camerama photo center. Enjoy them while you may. Soon they will be covered up by the ugliest, most garish sign in the business: the sick-making orange and pink of Dunkin' Donuts.

From the writing style, I'd guess that the signs are from sometime in the 1930's or 1940's.
