The Fates of Some Fading Signs



The Schuster Electric Co. sign was once relatively obscured, hidden behind a parking garage. For a short time, it once again saw the light of day. When a new building went up nearby, it survived. If you know where to look, you can still find it. Meanwhile, other signs aren't so lucky.

Return of a Newsletter

- I'm not sure what kind of photo you put with a post about a newsletter announcement, so here's a shot of the city from Covington. 

Years ago, QC/D had a newsletter that I'd sent out monthly with a recap of what had been posted over the past month. I've been getting a lot of questions for awhile as to whether or not that would return and now, it has. If you'd like to sign up, you can do so here. Emails will come once a month, with maybe an extra or two for any big announcements, generally providing a summary of what has been posted here recently. The newsletter is produced securely through MailChimp, and your information will never be shared.

Additionally, you can follow in real time on social media:

From the Train

- All the images in this quick series compressed together.

I photograph Cincinnati's modern streetcar quite often and while recently reacquainting myself with Walker Evans' series of photographs made on New York City subways circa 1938-41, I decided to shoot some quick street photographs on the train ride to work. As the train flew by, I fired the shutter at random and selected the photographs where people became framed by the passenger doors.

Some photographs from the train on a cold day in February:

Signed Copies of Fading Ads of Cincinnati Available in Limited Quanitity




At the end of 2015, I had the honor of publishing my second book, Fading Ads of Cincinnati, which tells the stories of "ghost signs" in the area through photographs and history. While promoting the book, I had the opportunity to host several book signings at local businesses; I was able to meet with a lot of great people and discuss fading advertisements as well as local history. While the book is still available in local stores and online, I have a few signed copies left. They're $25 plus shipping.

If you'd like to pick one up, you can order here and I'll ship it out promptly. If you'd like a personal message included, send me an email and I'll be happy to put one down.

Thanks for all the support here on QC/D these past ten years. More to come soon-maybe even another book.
