Antique graffiti in Montreal

Here’s a photo I took the other day around the corner from where I live. Yeah, you read that right. Sgraffito from 1943. It would seem that the owners of this home decided to parge their foundation wall in 1943 and the local kids scratched their names into the wet cement. Judging by the handwriting those kids would be about 79 years old by now. How amazing would it be if R.B. & B.T. grew up and got married and are still alive? I’m going to pretend that’s how things turned out because it would be awesome.
