When we first brought you our top 10 favorite ghost signs in January, there were still many more examples of the past on walls throughout the neighborhood. In April we featured another ten signs.

Since then we’ve found storeowners who have helped preserve some of these relics by incorporating them into their signage. Others, some a century old, continue to slowly fade away.
