Wallet Card visits a few old signs

Here the wallet card visits a few very old signs that have survived into present-day Manhattan.

The Clover Deli on 34th Street has been around since the 1940s, and their famous neon sign is almost as old as the store.

Above this typical eatery on the corner of 6th Avenue and 24th Street is a sign labeling the corner as "The Corner". The sign dates back to when this building was constructed in 1879 as a vaudeville theater called "The Corner".
Finally, a sign from the front of Master Cutting Table, a fashion supply store on 27th Street that is virtually unchanged since the 1960s.
