I'll have to count this sign as yet another detail of my neighborhood that I never noticed before. I've passed it so many times while walking down lower Madison Avenue near the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and the former "Little Italy" area of Albany.
When I was very young, we even got our old car's heater fixed here at least once or twice (and I still miss that 66 Caprice, heater problems aside). And the business is still open, though under a different name.
But the wonderful vintage sign - now very faded and corroded almost to the point of illegibility - never caught my eye before.
