Cool photo for sure. I helped build the CATV system in Rockland County back in 1974. Quite a culture shock in more ways than one for a kid from small town Louisiana by way of Texas to be so close to NYC. Never expected it to be so green so close to all that asphalt and concrete ether. Beautiful along the Hudson. That was an interesting build.
 
Yeah, the Hudson Valley is very picturesque, of course there has been sprawl the last 40 or 50 years but I'm told a lot of it is pretty unspoiled - my younger brother lives in Rockland Co.  I thought that structure behind them may have been an initial piling for the old Tappan Zee Bridge, but if the 1947 date is correct it's about 5 years before construction of the bridge began.  That bridge was over three miles long, as is the new replacement bridge.  There used to be a pretty good music scene in Nyack years ago, but I haven't been around there in over 20 years.

Not really grammar, more like poor/lazy labeling.  I saw this picture on a Pinterest page with the following title: "Henri Cartier-Bresson USA. New York City. 1947. Carson McCULLERS with her sister Nyack."  It was linked to a site which apparently sells photographic prints.  It made me laugh because they must've gotten their info in some abbreviated form which probably said something like "Carson McCullers and her sister Nyack NY 1947 by Henri Cartier-Bresson".  McCullers lived in Nyack, NY for about 20 years - I used to live across the river from there and have long known the name and place.  Her sister's name was Margarita, aka Rita (I had to look that bit up).  Anyhow, it's a nice photo.

From a sign-making company?
 

roflol Sign makers need a lot of hand-holding. I knew a guy who bought a sign/banner printing "company" and was doing art prints, large format photos, etc. The thing could print up to 1200 DPI inkjet onto art canvas and the guy was just goin' to town with it. I stopped in one day and it was cranking out a 1200 dpi print of sunflowers... unfortunately it was a photo off the internet, maybe 400 pixels wide... so at the size he was printing it was effectively about 12 dpi. But each of those pixels were being faithfully reproduced at 1200 dpi. I tried to explain where he was going wrong but he was happy with the output so I shut up.

Nothing to do with fonts or apostrophization, sorry. Brush Script and I've successfully forgotten the other stuff. 

 

This reminds me of a sign shop (FastSigns) that I drive by every day.  For several years, they had vinyl signage on one of their windows as follows:

CONSRUCTION
SIGNS

They finally removed it (not corrected, just removed). I wish I'd taken a photo.

Fascinating discussion of editorial oversight and the fallout from not having effective ombudspersonages anymore.

"As per usual"has bugged me for years, but I just spotted it in an otherwise entertaining article:

As per usual, Trump demonstrated his affinity for jumping up and down on Republicans’ failure to repeal Obamacare...

P and I are always amused by the aisle signs in grocery stores here: CAN MEAT, CAN VEGETABLES, CAN FRUIT, etc. Can meat what?
 
There's a supermarket I go to that had similar overhead signs with things like "Bottle Juice", "Bottle Water" as well as the "Can Vegetables", etc. until a few years ago when they did a big interior remodel and now they say "bottled" and "canned" instead.   Of course "bottle juice" and "can vegetables" make sense when you're in a grocery store, but it always bugged me.  Also, instead of falling into the "12 items or less/fewer" trap, their signs say "no more than 12 items" when they're turned on.
