    Uncovered during a renovation project. I imagine it'll disappear from view again soon, unless it's incorporated into the decor of whatever's going in this space.[​IMG]

    This was just uncovered when a building renovation was happening. City of Alexandria said it had to stay. [​IMG]

    A definitive sign of my youth. Belfast, Maine.

    Underneath "Republican Journal," which was and still is the local weekly paper, it originally read "Progressive Age," which was the RJ's arch-rival paper. The PA went out of business in 1889, and the RJ bought out all its assets -- immediately slapping its name over that of its vanquished foe. That lead paint really holds up, but you can't bury the past forever.

    It might be a little difficult to see (poor photo quality), but this was formerly the Montgomery Ward building in my home town:

    And here's how it looked after it opened in 1929:

    It had clearly been re-painted at some point because the style of the lettering (what we refer to as a font these days) is different, and the surrounding buildings have changed for a variety of reasons, but it's essentially the same building.

    Looks like a repo of Pepsi original images from the past over windows which have been sealed by bricks.
