The way things used to be

I am fascinated by buildings that are engraved with the name or logo of something that used to be there and that are now used for something else.  There are a lot of such buildings in Pittsburgh and cities its age.

I'm starting a series of posts on these buildings.  While it would be far more epic to have the stories behind the buildings and how they progressed through the years, I'll start with the rather easier approach of just posting their pictures.

To get things rolling, here is a picture of "Strawbridge & Clothier" in Philadelphia.  While the main sign is just a shadow, there is an engraved stone emblem with their logo.
