5 cents relieves fatigue by greg angus
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



An old painted advertisement wall
in Schenectady, NY.

Most of that old town
feels haunted
by a much brighter past
when a Coke only cost 5 cents.

    Very nice processing. Great capture…looking into the past.

  • Thank you, Lamiel.
    Just boosted the colour and increased the grain a bit to emphisize the crumbling brickwork.
    I love these old painted advertisements… truly a relic of the past.

    Great processing and fantastic content.

  • Thanks, Gerry. I was hoping the greens weren’t too bold, but I like them this way.

  • I know, classic, ain’t it? Comes from the same era when Camel cigarettes were advertised on TV as being good for digestion after a big meal.
