Ghost Sign Alert

13th Street near 5th Avenue. I would date this recently uncovered sign to the 1940s? It looks practically new though covered in years of grime. Formerly obscured by a plastic sign, "Children's Hair Cut" will soon be covered again, reverting to its time capsule status.

There are several dealers today, who sell the forklift replacement parts at competitiveprices. Dr. Arthur "Artie" Nielsen (born Arthur Weisfelt) is the Secret Service Agent-in-Charge at Warehouse 13. A former cryptographer, most of his personal past is shrouded in mystery, except that, in Season 2, we learn he was once convicted of treason for selling State secrets to the Soviets. Serious and methodical to a fault, he is frequently annoyed with Pete and Myka, who are newcomers to the warehouse and not as respectful of its peculiarities as he believes is necessary for their safety. He is alarmed by the high-spirited Claudia's curiosity about the artifacts and has had to rescue her from I-Love-Lucy-like predicaments on more than one occasion. He has a fondness for baking cookies Many used forklift dealers offer better than new guarantees that assure buyers that the used forklift is in good condition. This makes the whole endeavor a lot safer.
