Going to take my first stab at a reply here...

I can see some of the information on a few of the signs but a lot of it is quite unreadable. If you know what the signs actually say you could probably get away with some careful painting/colouring of the signs. Also maybe some selective burning and sharpening of the signs that are quasi readable.

Maybe talk to your friend to see if he/she knows what some of the signs are supposed to say. I suppose you could have some fun, too, and make stuff up.

Re-scanning the picture will also help, this one (the one you posted) suffers from pretty heavy jpeg-artifacts

thank you. much better.

the big sign on the top left says 'Cab Co.' the one below that and to the right says 'Yellow T'
........' 25c" (25 cents)
the one to the right of that says 'Yellow Cab Co'
.............................................' ........Taxi'. and there is more print below that that i cant make out.
also cant make out the text on the bus. it would seem to be something like:
KAIIME or
KAIJME or
KSIIWE or
well, i dont know. none of the bus can i make out to really say for sure.

that's about all i can get.
