Photo Friday: Passage of Time


This painted ad itself is old enough, but you can still see a ghosted image of the Coca Cola logo that might have been there earlier.

Nice take on this one - Cool typography picture!

This is an excellent example of palimpsest in Ghost Signs, where one sign fades allowing the older sign to push through to compete for space. It's a type of Ghost Sign that is quite common as the walls were sold for periods of time (surprisingly in those days it was years rather than weeks) and then painted over when the new sign was booked in.

See some of mine here:
