“Like it Was” The Bronx 1989

bronx-coca-cola-matt-weberI had the rare White Coca Cola button. I had a black cat. I even had a White Trans Am., but I never had a single print of this corner…I just realized yesterday, that many of my better images are just a bunch of “zeros and ones”.

“Malted Milk” 1987

malted-Milk-sign-matt-weberTo each his own, but Malted Milk was the worst flavor ever invented! Why have rotten curdled milk when chocolate  was an option? I do miss the days when you could buy an Egg Cream anywhere in this town for 35¢…

Automat Sign 1986

AUTOMAT-SIGN-MATT-WEBERI wish I had photographed this sign in Kodachrome, but I also wish the sign had been saved. Maybe it is in some museum…We all remember the Horn & Hardart’s which were all over town back in the old days, but the truth is, the food wasn’t very good! People rave about the pies but I think the “Delivery System” was what people are getting all misty over. Putting a few coins in the slot and then having your food’s little window open up, was all the fun, not eating the soggy tuna sandwich…

This image can be purchased for little more than a slice of cheesecake…

And Moses said, “Let There be Traffic, Forever!”

GW-BRIDGE-CROSS-BRONX-SIGN-MATT-WEBERI love old signs. The Cross Bronx Expressway has had traffic problems for as long as I can recall. This sign may have predated the “parking lot” which it became, but I guess without it, things would even be worse…

“But its not a Swastika!” (Super-Crop)

Swastika-CROPT-2013Yeah, I know it’s a Hindu symbol to you,  but here in New York there are still thousands of people who see something far worse than your cute little piece of jewelry…

That’s why I took your picture!
