Troy Williams Street Alley faded signage DSC_0538.jpgOnce, every sign was a handpainted sign. For a while in the '80s, I worked in an office next to one of the last of the old signpainters, a gentleman artist who could make a "Please turn off the lights" sign look lovely. Technology had already taken over by then, and with the advent of desktop publishing more and more signage became computer-based. I'm afraid that the grand old signs that used to grace the sides of city buildings, making life a little more colorful and interesting, are things of the past, slowly disappearing.


At least some of them are being documented, such as in my Flickr group Faded Signage. Take a look through if you love these old relics.

The Nutcracker is rarely seen in broad daylight. Apparently he looks much larger on stage.
