Discovering The Past

The city is redeveloping a section in the northeast part of Edmonton. While tearing down one old building they uncovered this old Army and Navy Department Store and on the side of the building next to it
there signage is well preserved

Seems like a bad time to be building in winter, interesting that the signage is still so well preserved.

Great find! Fascinating that it is still in such good condition. Fav.

That is fantastic, I take it that the demolished building was up brick to brick for the signage to be so very well preserved. It looks so cold, glad now to be here in New Zealand.
November 19th, 2020  
Oh , now that looks cold!
November 19th, 2020  
What fantastic discovery - nicely captured !
November 19th, 2020  
Love those old commercial murals
November 19th, 2020  
Nice capture, and interesting narrative again

The army navy blue hasn't faded! That's amazing and the rubble and snow make this perfect.
November 19th, 2020  
Wonderful old painted sign! Looks very cold where you are.
November 19th, 2020  
And you have snow! Wonderful image.
November 19th, 2020  
Brr, can't be easy to tear sown buildings in snowy weather
November 19th, 2020  
The old army navy sign is really cool... love the way the snow covers the old stone blocks.

So cold and a great old sign
November 19th, 2020  
Wow what a find!
November 19th, 2020  
Very neat to find this hidden sign and WOW you have snow!
November 19th, 2020  
Great find, love those commercial murals!

A fun street shot. The POV, for me, seems unique in that you captured the sign from behind and to the side.
November 19th, 2020  
Great old sign and winter scene capture.
November 19th, 2020  
Nice winter shot...Neat vintage sign
