I find this sign a curiosity. Little giveaways make it look recently-created (“12 noon” with space but “1pm” without; and note well that they are using lower case), plus there’s the graffito and the sticker plunked onto it.

Sign with sticker applied haphazardly in the middle reads ‘NO Shipping, Receiving 12 noon 1pm Monday to Friday’ in small caps, with ‘Closed 400 P.M.’ handwritten in faded marker

But then we have the Art Deco–inspired small caps. What to think?
