Can I sell pictures of buildings that show a phone number and address?

I took some pictures of buildings in a public area and in the pictures there is a phone number on a sign and an address on the window. Can I sell those picture without permission from thoses businesses? If illegal, then is it legal to sell those pictures if I remove the phone number and the address from the buildings?

It would be safer to obscure or remove the phone number and the address. I don’t know of a privacy right in this instance, but safe is better than sorry.
