A look at the city's past through its barely-remembered commercial signs.
Thursday, July 7, 2011
Unless they have a pseudo-scientific sounding old name, it can be hard to find much to say about signs for products that are still on the market. But I rather liked this sign for Orange Crush, in part for its general randomness of the sign on what must have been some sort of small commercial building in the middle of a residential area in Nordeast. There's a sign on the front door that says "Orange Crush Art," which must mean its in use as a studio, but I don't know.
Wikipedia tells me that the brand dates to 1911, and is currently owned by Dr. Pepper Snapple Group.
