Ghostly faded signs of the West Side

August 11, 2009

Maybe these businesses advertised on the side of a building in the West 30s are still around, but I can’t find a record on any of them.

I’m glad the ad is still holding on against the elements. It’s a ghostly glimpse into New York’s business past.

Most of these firms are related to the printing business: photo engineering, paper suppliers, etc. Yet strangely, tucked in the middle is an ad for the U.S. Navy publicity bureau.
