Remember 1501 West Roosevelt...

...Road from a few days ago? I can't believe I missed this!

...If you look closely there's a sign to the right of the door that says (you have to squint a little):


It's almost a palimpsest.

How long has it been there? Well, the election of 1972 was almost 45 years ago. Both George McGovern and Sargent Shriver are long dead. Was there something covering it up until recently? How long will it be there?

It reminds me of this (before) sign from Western Avenue which I posted last week.

The other (after) side looks like this.

There are plans to develop this stretch of Roosevelt Road; they've been in the works for at least ten years. But someday that building and that sign will be gone.
