Wholesale Stationer

Scottish Bank Building, 1876

Very little can be made out on the ad on the south side of this building. The whole thing has faded quite a bit in 14 years but that's actually made it a bit easier to read. I can barely make out "WHOLESALE STATIONER" across the middle, and "PAPER DEALER" below that in the latest photos. The orange ball is a complete mystery; the first three letters look like "Sea..." but that's about it.

See for yourself on SW Pine between Naito Parkway and 1st Avenue.

It was probably an ad for Sunkist and you're able to make out "SUN" not "SEA" hence the large orange globe.
