Cross the Street

For whatever reason, I usually walk on the west side of Vine.  This is only visible if one is on the east sidewalk.

And it's on the same building as this.

Maybe it was, maybe it wasn't.  Vine, just north of Central Parkway.

Over-the-Rhine, you just keep revealing your secrets,

Slowly, slowly.  Keeping me entranced.

Piggy Backin'

On the discovery yesterday, that another sign is gone forever, I found...
...another that probably isn't long for this world.  Soapbox Media explains why.
(The rapid extinction we seem to be witnessing deserves its own category: Lost.)
And right across the street, is this:
Where Digging Cincinnati History dug up some Cincinnati history.
And something fresh, to make up for the lack of new posts.
In the West End.

Son of a...

We've lost another one.  12th Street, between Vine and Race.
What's really infuriating about this?  Why it's been covered.
Here's what it used to look like, and a little history:
ArtWorks is painting one of ten murals on this building, Tender Mercies.
I like the mural program.  I really like what the City of Cincinnati, and ArtWorks have done.  However, I'm saddened that few, very few people see ghost signs as art.

No More Monmouth

Taken from the White Castle parking lot, a block west of Monmouth.
Something something National Bank.

Not surprisingly, the main drag in Newport's CBD has several ghost signs.

Graffiti Artist Shows a Little Respect


Sorry for the irregular updates, but it's summertime, and you shouldn't spend so much time in front of the computer anyway.

Not Much Hidden

When I first spotted this one, on Reading Road, in Reading, I figured the building on the left was covering up half of the sign.
Not so much.

Easier Seen in Person

Seriously.  I saw it from a block away, clear as day. 

I'll have to go by again, because I can't remember what it reads as.
