beverages, cigars, and hotels
On Monday, I took a trip down to the Fort Worth Stockyards and found a small gold-mine of "ghost signs" (fading ads, names of long-closed businesses, etc) on the exterior walls of the neighborhood's many brick buildings. Here is a sampling...
Miller ghost ad - North Main St. Fort Worth Stockyards A Dr. Pepper ad lurks in the shadow of a fire escape beneath a crumbling stucco wall on North Main St. Royal Crown ad on North Main St. This Owl Cigar ad was among the more interesting of my discoveries on Monday. It's located on West Exchange St. Llano Hotel Stage Coach Hotel - 2408 1/2 N. Main St. ??? Hotel on North Main St.
Enjoy; I'll post a second batch of Stockyard "ghost ads" soon.
