FRANKLIN S&R corp.


“FRANKLIN S.& R. corp.”
Bust logo lettering:
“EFFICIENT SAMPLING
• CAREFUL ASSAY
• GOOD RETURNS”

The Franklin sign is painted over a much older, larger sign. You can make out “…MBER CO” whitewashed along the bottom of the white sign.

At some point the Franklin changed to a corporation, necessitating the whitewashing of the old lettering of “CO.” which is still visible. A less polished, lowercase “corp.” covers the space. Looks as if the bust logo may have changed or added later as well, since it’s background also seems to have been whitewashed.

Castor at Balfour, Port Richmond.
