This sign is on an old warehouse in the Charlestown Navy Yard not far from the USS Constitution. I believe it was most recently used by Borden Candy (which was later bought out by NEECO). More interesting is the barely readable “White Star” near the top. I’m not sure what was going on here 100 years ago, but the White Star Line was a notable British shipping company which built some damn famous vessels, including the Titanic.
