Signs of the City

One thing that has always fascinated me about American cities is the abundance of old signage everywere. Wherever one goes, it will not take more than five minutes to find a vintage shop sign that hasn't changed in fifty years.

Here are a couple of recent examples from a walk around the Nob Hill and Russian Hill neighborhoods of San Francisco... sadly, two of the stores - the New Russian Hill Grocery and the Elephant Laundry - have both recently closed their doors forever.
