Goodbye, Grandma’s Boy

Here’s a two-part video follow-up to last week’s photograph of that “ghost sign” in Vancouver that, ninety years ago, advertised Harold Lloyd‘s first feature-length film, Grandma’s Boy.

The building on which the sign was painted has since been razed, and we’re not happy about that. We can’t help but hope someone tried to preserve the sign.

Though admittedly, there are not that many spots where such a thing could be displayed, so we’re no doubt kidding ourselves.
