Spotted: Vintage Store Signs, S. Broad St., Philadelphia



With the Walmartian destruction of mom and pop shops on proverbial Main St., it's important to capture Americana on film before it disappears. My husband could talk your ear off about how unusual the Philadelphia Gasworks sign is because it uses a brush script, but I just think they're cool pieces and full of history. I often travel down Broad Street (thanks to Gourmet to Go!),  but I am usually in a rush and/or have forgotten my camera, so I was happy that stars finally aligned and I was finally able to capture these beauties in such beautiful daylight.
