Ghostly faded ads of old city businesses

July 23, 2010

On 18th Street overlooking Broadway is this ad for A. Steinhardt & Brother, an importing company once located in the Union Square building were Petco is today.

Goodall Rubber, as seen in this Tribeca sign, also had a New York office. But the real find is the older, more weathered ad behind it.

You can just make out “manufacturer of handkerchiefs” at the bottom.
