Signs and Wonders
Here’s another. This one may be my favorite of all. The larger banner says “Crown Coat Front Co.” and the smaller sign to the right reads “mfgr’s of civilian and military coat fronts” A clear enough message, but so much more is left unsaid. Why mfgr coat fronts and not the whole coat? Were there other companies that made coat backs? Does coat mfgr remain as highly specialized today? I’m just getting started.
