Fading Ad: New Packing Company

NewPackingCo1

NewPackingCo2

New Packing Company, purveyors of sausages, other meats, cheeses and salads (including the "Country Maid" salad brand). Lake Street and Elizabeth Street, in Chicago's West Loop. This is the first fading ad I've seen that includes website URLs - both of which are now defunct, along with the company. If there's any consolation for the owners, it's that with the rapid redevelopment of the neighborhood, the building is now worth a small fortune.

That's a great incongruity you've spotted there. I love these photos of yours.
