Possibly Hundred-Year-Old Sign Unearthed In South Park

New, 14 comments

A very old-looking sign for Kelly Motor Trucks has been unearthed at a construction site near Eleventh Street and Grand Avenue; a tipster sent along these photos, along with an article from 1913 announcing that one Frank G. Miner had decided "upon the establishment of a factory branch of the Kelly-Springfield Motor Truck company in Los Angeles." (We found an LA Times article from April 1913, "[s]hortly after opening." Trucks were selling well at the time!) Our tipster also, sadly, updated us that the sign has already been tagged. Anyone up for trying to save this thing?
