Back in 2012, I posted about an antique sign for J. Yormark Shoes. It had been revealed and partly restored when a barbershop moved into its old spot on 8th Avenue near Jane Street.
Last year, the barber shop moved out and more portions of the sign were revealed. Above the stained glass was a second sign: SHOES YORMARK SHOES.
Then scaffolding went up, and the stained glass sign was not treated with any apparent care.
Now the renovation of the storefront is complete. Sadly, the antique sign has been removed, replaced with plain glass. The sign above it has either been removed or covered up.
J. Yorkmark Shoes opened sometime in the 1890s. For historic family photos of the shop, click here.
