Wallet Card found some old phone numbers

 I found a sign with some old phone numbers on this building in Far Rockaway, Queens. It's pretty faded, even in person but it says:

Kaufman Management Co.
PA 7-1132
LO 5-6252

Click on the photo to see it better. 

With those alphanumeric phone numbers, this sign dates back to at least the 1960s. Kaufman is still around today, after over a century in business. One of the phone numbers on their website is 212-563-6252, i.e. LO 3-6252, just one digit off from the number on this old sign.

  1. I've been noticing a lot of the old faded signs in some of the small towns around me lately. I don't feel inclined to photograph them, but do enjoy coming across them.
