WPC: Resilient

The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of December 30, 2016:

This week, share a photo of something that says “resilient” to you. It could be a local landmark that has survived through the decades (or centuries), or a portrait of a person you know who never gives up. You could snap an image of a bed of perennials that never fail to bloom in season, or of a ritual or tradition that you (or people in your community) have successfully preserved. Show us something that has endured.

Once it was quite easy to spot advertisement signs painted on the brick buildings of Sacramento; but as the city evolves and becomes more modern, many of these historical ads have been lost to demolition.

This sign still remains, adorning a building on Second Street, near the California State Railroad Museum in Old Sacramento.  While parts of it have faded, it’s still legible enough to serve as a poignant reminder of days long past.
