Hot off the heels of the last post, we are reminded again that we see what we want to see.
Mr. J. Kiesewetter sent us something that we glossed over in person at 4th and Vine.

Shining Through

More like "bleeding through", amiright?
Look in the foreground.

I've always suspected there was more underneath the cheap paint job that covers this building.

Back of Toppers

Mr. D.L. Hudson reports finding this in an alley behind Toppers Pizza in downtown Lincoln.

It's in the same alley as this more recent ghost sign.

Unnecessary Advertising

Another from Ms. D. Walz, who reports this building once housed a brothel, before it was purchased by a mission, which kicked the women out.

We're assuming the sign came after the whorehouse, because, well, some things don't need to be advertised on a wall.

Modern Art

Not a ghost sign, and hardly faded.
But this diner in Corryville earns a hat tip, for keeping the artform alive.

Also a hat tip to Sam Smith for his Oscar winning original song,
The Writing's On the Wall.

More Madisonville

Across the street from yesterday's entry. On Whetzel.

And on the south side of the building, hidden by a tree.
