Unknown 2

Construction giveth and construction taketh away. I wrote earlier about how demolition of the Metro Presort building at NW 9th and Glisan revealed the old Machine Work and Painting sign. New construction might cover it up again (you can see part of the "G" at center-right just above the 2x4 railing below) but in the process they've cleaned up a bit of the old brick and a snippet of another sign has been revealed.

We'll see how the architects and developers deal with this wall. I'm hoping the whole sign will be revealed and preserved, of course, and I'll post any updates on what happens.
