      What a beauty! I'd put my bets on the 1920s-1930s on that sign, as that font matches some of the oldest designs in the subway. For some reason, Times Square was one of the last stations to have those big porcelain signs replaced, and I always wish I'd gotten my act together to grab some pictures of them while they were still up. At least this one lives on.
