i've started to take a real liking to old forms of advertising...perhaps in response to what i'm typically exposed to on a daily basis. i really like it when these old outdoor signs have a lot of layers. but the one thing that bothers me about them is that they are so vulnerable. there was a sprite ad (with clever zingy copy and neat fonts) that i used to admire on another brickface and last year when the building it was a part of was slated for demolition, i thought of taking photographs, but then never had the chance. the condos in its place are still under construction, and my memory of the old sign is fading.
