Images of some 450 signs captured since September 2006. The images are grouped categorically. As you may have already noticed, I'm not a real ace web designer. But ultimately I hope to devise a search engine or some other method of making the photos as easy as possible to navigate. In the meantime, my humble apologies for this crude presentation.
THE CATEGORIES are borrowed from a system used by the John W. Hartman Center for Sales, Advertising & Marketing History at Duke University.
A NOTE ON THE "MADE IN" DATES:
"1945" = this date has been confirmed.
"c. 1945*" = probable date based on records of the NYC Dept of Bldgs.
"c. 1945" (no asterisk) = this date is my best guess.
