Yesterday, I was doing a search for Diana Coal Oil since I recently reposted it, and I found my image on the Our Lady of Loreto’s Photo’s of Old East New York page (Dominick Mondelli, Webmaster).  Here are some highlights from Donny’s page of old East New York filled with great fading ads and other glimpses of Brooklyn’s past.

  1. Hey Frank,

    I exterminate in that shelter every month. I pass by the church on my way home every day.

      When they first remodeled the building and turned it into a shelter, several of our students when I taught locally lived there.

    What are you doing up responding to posts at 4:00 in the morning?

    I love the old pictures of New York/Brooklyn. I use them as models for my paintings…sometimes I do them almost exactly, while other times I change the names and small details, and pass them off as old Montreal…it’s all in good fun, and the results are great !

    1. fadingad says:

      Would love to see your paintings. Send me some jpegs at least 600 pixels across.

    the old New York done as old Montreal?…send me your email and I’ll send you some of my attempts…I just saw your comment this morning, April 28 2012. Michael Litvack/Montreal mrtrivia@vdn.ca

    Most of these pictures were taken from the Our Lady of Loreto website without permission. Those pictures are copyright protected and were not to be taken and posted on anyones website. Here is the link to the website http://loretochurch.com/Photos.html

    The owner has already sued a few people for taking pictures from his website and posted them on their website without his permission.

    So the owner of this site, Fading Ad, Frank Jump will most likely be sued if the owner of the Our Lady of Loreto website ever sees this website.

      Before you post comments about litigation, perhaps you should check out the Loreto Church website and see the image of mine that was used BEFORE I emailed the owner of that site, had gotten permission to use HIS images and in return, he posted a link to my site under the image of MINE he had already used.
