A sign vanishes

Clark at Hollywood/Ridge

This painted sign, for “The Piano Gallerie”, is on a building at the huge and busy intersection of Clark and Hollywood. It was one of those things I didn’t quite know what to think of, till it vanished. Only a few weeks after these photos, the sign was painted over in solid white.

The Piano Gallerie

I rather miss it. There was a charm to its homespun, minimal budget attempt at elegance.

Clark Furniture

Another distinctive sign may be in danger next door, as Clark Furniture has gigantic “Going Out of Business” signs in the windows. (I’ve heard reports that they’ve been “going out of business” for months or years.)

Edit, 7 June 2007: They did indeed close this week, and the sign has been painted over. Bugger all!
