I was in Moline recently and while tooling around town I ran across a building that was being renovated. In a previous century this building had been a small neighborhood grocer. (In its new life it will be a barber shop.) What struck me as I passed was the beautiful advertisement for Peter Pan Bread. It had been covered up for at least a couple of decades, and the paint was both weathered and protected. Several windows had been cut through the old image, but from a proper viewing distance, one could imagine what it must have looked like when it was first affixed to the side of the grocery store.
