Need A Boss . . .

See it before it's gone!

When the Bayview library was torn down last month to make way for a new library a vintage painted advertisement was exposed on the building adjacent to the old library.

The sign for Boss Of The Road Overalls & Workshirts is believed to have been painted in approximately 1921!

According to the Chronicle; because the sign sits on private property the Library has no obligation or authority to preserve it.

So before the new building blocks the sign again; here is a glimpse into the past!

  1. Do you think they would cut a window in the new library so one could still see historical art work?
