I find faded, vintage signs fascinating, especially those that were painted by hand. They provide a glimpse back in time via the advertising of the day. My very first commercial art was hand lettering signs and menus, leaving me with a great respect for this disappearing art. This detail is from a Seven Up sign in San Jose, CA that I am sure is long gone replaced or covered up by a high rise.
