Ghost signs

I love ghost signs. I’ve been meaning to take some pictures in SF. Now I find (via Book of Joe) that Sam Roberts has an entire blog devoted to them.

  1. I didn’t know they had a name. Thanks!

    We have several in Champaign-Urbana, although lots have been covered up lately. Maybe I’ll try to get some photos of the ones that remain.

  2. Yes, it would be good to document them. I keep meaning to do so. But I never do.

  3. Hi Xensen,
    That Redferns rubber sign got covered over again by some billboards which interestingly will preserve some of it for the future.

    However it won’t be there for me and others to see.
    Thanks for giving my blog a plug,
    Sam
