Graffiti Part I

Anyone who collects or reads old paperbacks sees the graffiti left behind by former owners. The least invasive is signatures, addresses and such of individuals. Booksellers leave the most invasive. Here are some examples of the latter. The oldest is likely the first one. Wolfe's was in my old hometown of Sudbury and closed sometime in the 70s.

The closest match for the Book Market at 201A Pitt Street is Cornwall, Ontario.
