The Joy of Discovery. And the Pain of Obliviousness.

This is in the alleyway behind the Macy's building.  It's near other ghost signs, and close to a big, ugly 70's mural.  I'd noticed the Shaftway (whatever that means) sign before, but didn't pay it much attention, because it didn't immediately meet the strictest criteria* for this blog. 
It wasn't until yesterday when I happened to notice the painted awnings. 
So: happy for finding something.  Sad for not seeing it before.
*The strictest criteria meaning arbitrary rules created and ignored by me when convenient.

  1. Ha, we like the "ugly 70s mural" so much that we tracked down the portfolio of prints on which that mural series was based, framed that one and hung it in the middle of our living room.
