Lost Art of the Hand Painted Trade Sign Antique Photograph
A nice occupational photograph (it looks like a Real Photo Post Card but is in fact a larger print, on cardstock) of Brown's Sign Shop circa 1900. Note Scaffold rigging rope in back and the giant sign being created at left.)
If you are interested in the folk art of hand painted signs, I can recommend the documentary SIGN PAINTERS which you can find HERE.
