Preserve is on going project to produce a permanent visual record of hand painted building signage. Many of these are being erased from our cityscapes either being worn away by weather over time, covered as buildings have been repainted, disappearing as buildings are demolished or replaced with modern signage equivalents. This site will be updated regularly with my latest images and you are invited to contribute to this work.
from the site: The signage in the image above (from Lockhart, Texas, USA taken by Cherie Benoit) to my thinking should be placed with a protection order. Not only is this advertising from days past a historic record of that time but also could now be considered as a work of art in its own right. It gives character to the building on which it is placed and the town that it occupies and is indeed an impressive thing to behold.
