These Ghost Signs Are a Faded Reminder of Yesterday’s Main Streets
These gorgeous old signs may be faded, but they are still spectacular.
So many brands that have become a part of our everyday lives go that way because we became familiar with them from the ads painted on buildings. And, they lend a certain comfort despite their faded glory. But, we love to see the ads for businesses and products that no longer exist. It’s almost like pulling a business card from out of a time machine. This Budweiser sign makes us think of small town bars and grocery stores on a hot afternoon.
This bread-shaped cafe sign is so charming.
It’s so neat to see the advertisements painted over each other, still clinging to the bricks.
