Euclid Ave. Carriage Co.

Walter Sheppe of Akron, Ohio submitted this photo, exposed in 1990, saying it is his favorite wall sign of all that he has seen. It is an ad for the Euclid Ave. Carriage Company, said to date from 1895. The picture in detail shows a folk-art rendition of a Victorian-era couple in their new carriage.  The carriage ad was painted over an older ad for milk.  Walter Sheppe said that the sign was preserved by an adjacent building that had recently been demolished.
