Category: Hamilton, SIGNS


Focal Length:22.5mm
Shutter:1/0 sec

A mixture of older and newer and, for a lithographer’s, something oddly illegible. Seen on the side of a vacant building in Jamesville in Hamilton.

  1. Interesting old sign painted on the wall, I wonder if there are still lithographers around. They replaced the old fashioned job printers like my dad.

  2. An interesting combination.

  3. Great capture Lesley! I am not sure if the taggers got the irony of it or not.

  4. i like the font on the lithograpers.

  5. Interesting contrasts for sure, Lesley.

  6. Somehow I have missed seeing this one!
    The lithographers has a certain lilt to it!

  7. Nice juxtaposition of the past with the present!

  8. an interesting combination. i haven’t seen signs here painted directly on a brick wall.

  9. looks like the (graffiti) artist was interrupted halfway through on the 2nd “smash” eh? i wonder if it was police or just nosey onlookers?

  10. Love how the sign appears fractured and peeled! Fascinating!

  11. One done with a paint bush and the other with a spray can.

  12. I love to look at these signs and the old buildings they are painted on. You have reminded me of an old coke logo painted on a building I should use for signs, signs.

  13. I love the serendipity of pairing these two, especially as they seem to reflect each other in an odd way, with the past and present coming together seamlessly!

  14. A very good find Lesley. Happy Monday!

  15. So sad, the lithographer out of business, the building vacant. I spent my working life in the printing and newspaper businesses.
