We don't do a lot of ghost sign hunting Downtown any more,
because we've found everything.

Or have we?

Until recently this was covered by shoe repair sign on Vine, at Court.

Reader Submissions

These first three samples come to us from Mr. B. Johnson,
during his recent trip to New Orleans.

Note the layering in this example. It's likely the sign beneath the Dixie Mill
sign is for Uneeda Biscuit.

We've been lax in updating, and we apologize for that.

We've been so lax we've forgotten from whom some of our reader submissions came.
We apologize for that as well.

At the corner of Elm and Kenner, in downtown Ludlow, KY.
The pharmacy has moved on.
I suspect this sign was painted to celebrate an anniversary.

But, historically, there was a sign painted on this wall.
Northern Kentucky Views has a photo. It looks to be from the 1960s or 1970s.

If you poke around that site, you'll find more than a couple of other ghost signs before they became ghost signs.
