Fading Ad: Laundry

51A63F44-F678-418C-AC27-9B26CA2EC28C

This ad was revealed after a recent demolition in Champaign, IL. I can’t read the name of the company at the top, but I like the command: “SEND YOUR LAUNDRY / SEND YOUR CLEANING.” (There’s also another “SEND...” just below, but it was obscured by electrical equipment.) 712 S. Sixth Street, Champaign.

You might be interested in "Vintage Ads of Chicago" by Joseph Marlin. He's apparently been documenting fading wall ads in Chicago for some time. There was an interview with him on WGN radio:
