Signs Of The Times

Old, new, painted, neon—in cities, you’re surrounded by signs. Signs become a part of a city’s skyline; they tell the history of neighborhoods. Curbed Chicago recently cataloged the city’s iconic signs, including the timeless Central Camera Company sign which has been flashing neon underneath the El tracks for decades. The store itself is over 100 years old but still going strong, thanks in large part to the neighboring art schools. What’s your favorite neighborhood sign?
