This is one of the coolest things I've photographed with the wallet card. It is a metal sign advertising a 1963 real estate auction that is still attached to the wall of a Greenwich Village apartment building. It is a red metal sign that apparently has not moved even though the auction occurred 52 years ago. I guess the red sign blended with the red brick and nobody noticed it when it was time to take it down.
Ephemeral New York who originally discovered the sign:
