Classic signs

Sometimes you have to wonder about
Today, everwhere you look
your view is blocked by gaudy,
" in your face"
signs advertising products and services.

A hundred years ago...
this is how you invited someone in
to your shop.
. .

Somewhere along the way, we lost sight of
simple class.

there's no doubt class has gone way downhill-- and those advertisements drive me nuts. such an eyesore! moscow is the same way.
