[Fading Advertisements] The Winslow's Next Door Neighbor


Unlike a lot of the fading advertisements seen on this site and in the book, this one isn't still promoting a business long after it's gone.

Still, the mural/advertisement is fading a bit and I photographed it recently for another project, but thought it was worth a mention here specifically because of its details.
