The dappled light round the ghost sign tones works so well in monochrome. Lovely.

"Cigars" and "prescriptions" in the same advert???? A real sign of the past and a reminder of how we were. I guess not many people smoke a cigar in this day and age.

A classy building. I love the light on the faded inscription.

You have to love the ghost signs. They are few and far between, but when we find one it is really special.I am always on the lookout for one. This is a great find.

Ah, the days of yore where the advertising art was applied directly to the building, and billboards were alongside the road. I like this view in B&W, it feels like I am in the midst of that era. Soda, cigars and prescriptions? My kind of drug store!

B&W was the perfect way to capture this shot. Well done!

I would never have thought to call them ghost signs but it really fits. Well done.
