Ghost Signs of Philly Poster Philadelphia Ghost advertising signage

$ 18.00

Ghost signs are another name for old, hand-painted advertising signs that have hung around so long their letters and images have become faded and, well, ghost-like. Hidden City Project Director Pete Woodall has been photographing ghost signs for years, and he's collected 28 of his favorite ones here, from well-known and well-loved signs such as the fisherman above Franklin Fountain on Market Street, or the Reedmor Books sign on Chestnut Street above Milk Boy, to obscurities like Moore Push Pin on Berkley Street and "Ketchup Kid" on West Venango Street. 

Poster measures 18x24 and is printed on glossy, 100 weight book stock. Addresses for each of the signs are listed at the bottom.
