Monday Mural

Two old advertisements for automobiles in Amsterdam.  Minerva, Amsterdam carriage company and Reo in the Leiden street. They seem to be fresh repainted.
Linking to "Monday Mural"

  1. Leuke oude advertenties. Wat zou zo'n muur anders ook maar kaal zijn.

  2. This picture is making me miss Amsterdam even more that I thought. I have told Buddy I want to go back before I can no longer fly which is going to have to be soon. Sitting in those seats for long or short periods of time do not sit well with my back. I cannot imagine a lovelier place to live. I am just sad I did not get out of the city and into the countryside. I vet it is beautiful. Thanks for your sweet words. It is good to be back.

  4. Years ago there was a company that made "REO Speed Wagon" trucks. The rock group REO took this as their name.

  8. Advertisinf on walls were also very popular in France in the 60s, 70s and 80S. These ones are well-preserved. I like them very much! Great find!

  9. They do look bright and freshly painted but maybe they have just been cleaned.

  10. The advertisements look commercial and out of place on those lovely old buildings.

  11. These old murals are fantastic, and make nostalgia even I don't know them.
    This street looks locely.
