Signs of Hope

Call us crazily optimistic, but it sure looks like someone is repainting 
this sign at Walnut and 13th. 

If you're not convinced, compare it to this
Or a more recent picture from our "Why We Hunt" series.

There are purists in the ghost sign world, (yes, there is a subculture of ghost sign enthusiasts.), who disapprove of restoration.
We here at Faded Ad Art are coming around to the idea of restoration.


Because someday it will fade again, and be a ghost sign again.
So,the Faded Ad Art official position is "It's better to restore than lose altogether."

  1. This was a good post! I really do agree that signs like these need to be restored instead of broken down and replaced!
