Lasting Paints Ghost Sign in Baltimore

Lasting Paints Ghost Sign in Baltimore

On my most recent trip to Baltimore, I took my friends’ dog on a massive walk through the West side of town and stumbled upon the old Lasting Paints ghost sign on Franklintown Rd. between West Pratt and McHenry Sts.

Unintentionally, I ended up in the part of Baltimore where some of The Wire was filmed. In fact, there’s even a tour of all the various locations. The Western District way!

I’d love to know the history of this building. It’s a grand home with a pretty mansard roof and some cobbled-together additions. It now appears to be a school or part of one. And it used to be a paint store!
