Something to go with Juicy Lucy

Here's a shot of A. Frank, taken outside of the Met upon coming out of the exhibit, "Looking In," which is full of forceful Robert Frank photos. The handsome and exhaustive catalogue greatly enriches the experience of the show (although it's funny that Frank honed his shots for The Americans down to 83 images while the catalogue includes absolutely everything).

To pick up hand-painted signs, unlike Juicy Lucy, this notice is far from lovely, but I was struck by so much . . . er . . . brush lettering done by someone who seems unused to painting type. I doubt "T Woods" is the tanked Tiger, but one never knows.
