How much do I love terrazzo signs? A lot. This one in downtown Ferndale, MI is for the old Innes J. Davidson Jeweler, and the color and lettering are so beautiful that we should ponder this lovely O before moving on to the whole thing.
I spotted this ghost sign for Schulze’s Butter Nut Bread on 18th St. just west of South Damen Ave., in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.
Jesus was here, and he hears you — spotted in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.
Ahh, the glorious and odd Frank Selmier Towel Supply! This ghost sign is located on the edge of Lockerbie Square, on East Michigan Ave., just off College Ave. and next to the gay bar 501 Eagle.
This terrazzo ghost sign for Herzog is located at 806 Madison Ave. in charming, sleepy downtown Covington, Kentucky, just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. Herzog Jewelers still exists, albeit in nearby Fort Mitchell.
Unbelievably, there’s another VL studio out there. It’s a barber shop in the Chelsea neighborhood of NYC.
I came across this really large ghost sign at 912 East Westfield Blvd. in the Broad Ripple neighborhood of Indianapolis. “Parking in rear” is the only part of it that’s really legible.
