A sign in Brooklyn in need of an old "Q"


Design folks will tell you never to mix fonts on a line as it is here at the Ocean Parkway subway station at Brighton Beach Avenue.  But here the old  coexists with the new and I guess that the old lettering is somewhat nostalgic with a sense of the past to it.
We don't need to renovate the whole station when a little scraping and painting of this small sign can restore this piece of our memory. And maybe someone could find a "Q" in the old font and style to join the rest of the family up there.
