can you find charlie chaplin?

DURING a particularly hot and humid day, I found my legs taking me to a dark, cool alley underneath the railroad tracks on the outskirts of Ginza. I had a beer in a tiny Okinawan bar and found these old advertisements plastered on the alley wall. The signs were bound to the sheet metal through years of rain and weather. I wonder what the rest of Tokyo looked like when these signs were still new?
