The Flower Thief

You can't really nail down the flowers so they are prone to random acts of street thievery, but I've never seen a store so blatantly post the pictures of the crime in action. Not sure if this is a strong deterrent since not too much detail is evident from the pictures, but I'll give them credit for trying. Sign seen posted on the outside of a deli on Madison Avenue in the 30s.

I do like a bunch of fresh flowers -- a nice bouquet really brightens up the place.

i agree. details of the pic is vague. you can't tell if the guy is stealing or actually buying the flowers.
