melville florist



























I was stuck in traffic while driving along route 110 when I noticed this sign. I'd love to know how old it is. lucky for me traffic was at a standstill so I could take its picture.

It is a sign oozing with character and history; nice find! I love the busy reflections in the window.

You know I love this kind of post.

Fabulous. I'd guess the 1950s but it could be as early as the 40s or as late as the 60s.
Great photo. Glad you found a handy traffic jam!

Seems like more thought and creativity was put in signs in the past. PGma

I was going to say pretty much what Kay L. Davies said: 1940s or '50s. And I'd like to second Jimmy's comment!
