A lot to appreciate here on Elm, near Findlay Market.
First, the quality of this cigar sign on glass, compared with the last few we saw.
And the artist: none other than Gus Holthaus,
who has a lot more signs on this blog than he's credited for.

Growing up in the Midwest, Alco meant a chain of discount stores.
They went out of business in 2015, and didn't have a presence in Philadelphia anyway.
As it turns out, Alco stood for Arnold, Louchheim & Company.
And leave it to another ghost sign hunter to find the history for us.
