I found two pics in my phone from 2014.

Not the best pics, but both are in the Photos section.
I was finally able to get a halfway decent shot of the Bryn Mawr ghost signs on the South & East elevations of the building from the train.
The East elevation is more legible, as there is a reflection of the train windows on the other one.
I never noticed the one on the East elevation before, but it came out better than my intended one.
