Hmm. when I was in Kindergarten my friend had a Daper Dan doll. But that was 1972 nevermind.
It would be cool if there was a museum that these kinds of things could be put in.
Great stuff Ken.

there definitely is an archaeology within cities.

I love when a building is renovated to uncover the painted billboards on the building walls next door.

Great photo. The past is a funny thing, it lies just under the surface of our lives. All I know about Dapper Dan is Ulysses Everett McGill from O Brother, Where Art Thou?

We need to organize a commando operation to discretely lift those very cool signs. I can picture this very well in a living room. ;)
