Bklink: Signs & Vines

If you're into old signs on buildings, this post with photos on "signs & vines" on a Flatbush building is a must click. "This sign, formerly on Nostrand Avenue & Glenwood Road- near Brooklyn College- illustrated the effects of nature on a fading ad, which made it a dynamic reminder of the passing of time- not to mention ones own mortality...The last image was taken on June 22, 1999- and is in an unusual summer state for this entwining symbiosis of signage and vinage. Apparently the roots were cut and the healthy, lush leaves have withered in the summer sun- another unexpected death. Signs and vines weather and grow." There's also a cool photo from the MTA of the street in 1971.--Fading Ad Blog
