You'll recognize this from my Dallas Pottery post two days ago. I thought the writing on it made it worth another post. It's tipping over backward, but I didn't want to correct that and eliminate the sides in the process.
Love the sign here.

I'm with Stephen. Someone hit the nail on the head, and best of all, transformed corruption into hilarious. The spirit of the common man will be victorious.

Wonderful in B 'n W ... and i'm glad you didn't do any perspective correction; it emphasizes the height this way!

Great processing Don. a photograph that reminds me of the old westerns that I loved to watch on TV when I was young

A true visual treasure for you to photograph, Don ! Your black and white is just right.
29 Feb 2012 5:53pm
Interesting...really like the shot.

WoW! How cool! Is it a real historic old building? They finance assassinations? That's not good
29 Feb 2012 8:09pm
i had no idea they were SO spot-on ahead of the times in their day ... ;-)))
or may we deduce that even then they had those greedy bastard 99 % around ?!?
whatever the case might be, this is truly a sight to behold ... and a hilarious one, too! what a message ...
(only the german inscription in the window doesn't make much sense ... ;-))

The good ole pawnbroker...that list of benefits is just the type of thing my stepbrother would use to advertise his wares. A good pic, don. B+W suits most admirably. ;oD

Super texture and detail here Don! I think they had it right when they were forcasting economic instability even back then! Well seen and captured Don! ;-)

good call to get a close up of it.. it's really neat! :D love the old timey western look it has too.. great shot.. :)

At first glance. I assumed this was a movie set, but then I realized the humor in the sign. The detail and the decay is really nice, and thanks for passing it along.
1 Mar 2012 10:12pm
That is a great shot, very fun sign and also nice textures and comp.
