City Furniture Ghost Sign in Over-the-Rhine

City Furniture Ghost Sign in Over-the-Rhine

City Furniture, established in 1970, is now a series of ghost signs located on the corner of Race and Green Sts. in Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati, just south of Findlay Market.

I love this chunky hand-painted lettering:

Above this ghost sign is another one — something about an Ironworks:

  1. For me, the iron works sign is infinitely more compelling than something painted on a sheet of plywood. But still, it’s an interesting storefront.

  2. Funny we ride past there at least once a week and I’ve never noticed that smaller sign. I guess there is too much going on to take it all in.

  3. See, I have a soft spot for this kind of chunky lettering. I don’t think I even noticed the “ironworks” type until I was scrutinizing my photo. Sometimes this stuff just hides in plain sight!

  4. It is always enlightening learning a thing or two about a historical event, be it about a furniture store or anything else that is interesting. It is nice to see that these antique signboards are still up firmly at the store instead of being dumped into a storage facility somewhere to be abandoned and left alone. At least now passers-by within that vicinity can enjoy a historical moment while passing by there.
