Cockeyed Parrot on Washington Street in Roslindale

Update, Friday morning: And just like that, the sign is covered over again.

For several decades now, the space next to the convenience store on Washington Street across from Washington-Beech has been a laundromat. It's getting remodeled, though, and today it returned to its days in the 1960s and early 1970s, when it was a discount clothing store, with a '60s-style sign that was never taken down, just boarded over.

Charlotte Golar Richie signs in the snow

A roving UHub photographer was hiking through the Roslindale side of Stony Brook Reservation with his family yesterday when they came across these seemingly fresh Charlotte Golar Richie signs just lying in the snow. She ran in 2013, so who's been sitting on these signs for eight years (both signs and tarp look pretty fresh) and suddenly decided they had to get rid of them and the best way to do that was dump them in the woods?
