I like the narrow space between the buildings as a perspective.

I love finding old signs like these. Hopefully it wont be painted over.

I love it and a great sign it is! I agree with Brattcat! Hope your week is going well, JM! Enjoy!

Love the shot!

Very interesting. Look at how close those buildings are - you could reach out and grab your neighbors clothes! Beats shopping.

I wonder how you knew the tailor was old? Heh, heh. You didn't. That's why you said you should have written that other thing. Heh, heh!

This is a wonderful shot JM. The sign is great and I'm trying to figure out if that is laundry hanging up there between those buildings!

It makes for a lovely composition, JM.

Nice find! Are there many "ghost" signs like these around?

Maybe 'vintage' sign would sell it better! Great picture anyway!

I like the way the way the sign has fallen matches the wonky writing and like others am amazed at the narrow street.
