Upper West Side 1988

A small but “important” detail of this picture is the old 1960’s Pepsi-Cola Sign in the background which had been hanging in front of “La Caridad” for a long time when I snapped these workers riding in the truck. If I wasn’t a sign collector and a fan of their Spanish-American cuisine then I’m sure the demo guys would be the only part of this picture which mattered…
