Mohawk Apts.

12th and Jefferson, Capitol Hill

There's a lot going on here: "Mohawk Apts." is clear, then under that "For Vacant Lots in this Vicinity" and "Union Trust Co." Over the top of it all appears to once have been "KING SIZE COKE" though it is not clear whether this was Coke as in Coca-Cola, or Coke as in fuel or something else entirely. It seems to imply the cola, but I've never seen a Coke ad that wasn't in the stylized script. This is definitely a head scratcher. Also, apologies for the shadows but there isn't a better time of day to see the lettering this clearly. If you see more going on here, please comment!
