I spotted the ghost sign for Mueller Marble Works on Mehring Way at Gas Alley, on the Southwestern edge of downtown Cincinnati. The plaque on the left reads The Standard Marble Works Co. [is that the business currently in this building?].
This terrazzo entryway proclaiming Cy Clyde is filthy and gross, but the jaunty type is really fun! I spotted this ghost sign in Miami Beach, in an entryway to a boutique.
The Beesley Furniture Company was located on the corner of 3rd Ave. North and Broadway in Nashville, TN, on the edge of what is now the tourist district.
Ce n’est pas un signe de fantôme.

Actually, my favorite part of the Baker Brush Co. Inc. ghost sign is the word “receivin.” Spotted this one on Greene St. in SoHo between Canal and Grand Sts.
The ghost sign for Noah’s Whiskey Beer [or Pepsi Whiskey Beer Noah's, as it were] is on the corner of Spring Grove Ave. and Ledlie St. in a light-manufacturing no-man’s-land in Cincinnati.
This awesome ghost sign proclaiming Bayer Pills is located on West Congress St. in Savannah, between Jefferson and Montgomery Sts.
Leon Jewelry was located at 222 Dauphin St. in Mobile, AL, just a hop and a skip from the heart of downtown. A lovely protruding sign on a beautiful old building!
The Polinsky Co. Office Furniture ghost sign refers to a business at 210 East. 9th St. in downtown Cincinnati, but it’s painted onto the back of the building and visible from Main St. Typewriters, adding machines, and calculators, but what about subtracting machines?
