While crews demolished a branch library in the Bayview to make room for a new one, they discovered a sign that the existing building had covered for almost 90 years. But as SF Gate puts it, "history buffs should hurry," if they want to see the sign. The sign, which advertises Boss of the Road Overalls and Workshirts, will be covered again when the construction of the library is finished. "It's been preserved by a building since somewhere in the 1920s," said Michelle Jeffers, spokeswoman for the library system. "And now we'll just preserve it for the next 100 years."
