  15. Those old building signs are so cool, but I fear they are disappearing fast, never to return.

  16. Nice ghost sign. I forget to look for them in New England. They are less common in Florida, because everything down there is so new.

  17. You have to love ghost signs. By all rights they should have been obliterated by now; yet they persist. A little present from the past.

  18. Love these old, ghost signs. How times have changed. Plug tobacco is not socially acceptable these days, and even tobacco advertising is banned.

  19. Nice find. I've never heard of Shamrock, but then I'm not that familiar with plug tobacco!
