The latest installment in my ongoing investigation into the vanity license plates of Southwestern Ohio concerns food and beverages. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we are looking into what makes a FEAST.
Northside’s CoSign Initiative Could Become a National Model after Landing New Grant: awesome, awesome news for CoSign [but next time, please ask for repro rights; WTF?].
Cincinnati’s Gorgeous Attempt to Woo Visitors, Circa 1933: some of the glass mosaic murals from the Cincinnati Union Terminal currently live at CVG and will hopefully find a new home soon.
Suburban Blight in Kansas City: just that, in words and pictures.
The New York City Filming Locations of The Warriors: only one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen on the Internet.
City Walk: The Show Is Afoot!: a TV show about walking through cities like LA and NYC; sounds pretty cool.
Warby Parker Gets All Coney Island with New Collection of Specs: this video is a hypnotic bunch of hipster douchebaggery, set on the Coney Island boardwalk.
Animal Commuters: Strangest Creatures Found on Public Transit around the World: bizarre but kind of awesome.
Awesome architecture, awesome ghost sign… The Acme Farm Supply building is located on the corner of Broadway and 1st Ave. South in downtown Nashville.
This seems to be turning into a regular feature, as there’s been no shortage of WTFuckery lately. The Rensler’s tile downtown is the latest victim in an ongoing conspiracy against Cincinnati ghost signage [see also this and this].
What’s in the small town of Cullman, AL? Not much: the Ave Maria Grotto is definitely a must-see, the Bismarks at the Duchess Bakery are awesome, and I spotted this ghost sign for D. Fischer Undertaker.
To be fair, the brand integration on the Tower ghost sign on Main St. in Over-the-Rhine is better executed than the recent typographic assault on Cincinnati Color Co.. HT to Faded Art for catching this one in progress and alerting me to the ch-ch-ch-ch-changes.
The ghost sign for White Tool and Supply Co. is located in Cleveland’s Warehouse District on West 6th St. at Johnson Ct.
As I wander through different cities, I try my best to keep track of where I spot ghost signs. This two-in-one for Ballard’s is somewhere in Birmingham, but I have no idea where.
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.
