Ghost Signs

We went to visit my sister for a pre-Christmas lunch, a little shopping, and a few drinks. Outside the restaurant was a 'ghost sign' painted on an old brick building.

I've always found ghost signs to be interesting. This one was particularly interesting to me as I think the building now houses shops and apartments. There is a story behind such signs. I wish I knew the story behind this one!

Let me know if you know of any others . . .

I think I have seen some in 'the bend' I have always liked these too. I've been so busy rushing around, I can't remember where these are in town. I will have to pay more attention so I can show you where they are! My fave was on an old HGTV show, where they were reviving a whole town, and they completely restored one sign that took up a whole building's side. It was awesome.
