A hand-painted sign in the West Village

November 18, 2008

This old-school sign is attached to the basement level of a Charles Street brownstone. With WA-9-3781 for a phone number, it might as well still be the 1960s.

WA-9 stood for Watkins, according to an Ephemeral New York reader. Now, what was Watkins?
