Northside


We've eyeballed this building for a while, with the hunch there was something there.


There's not much, but, it's visible now.

More from Lincoln


Along O Street. 
This is an oddity. The sign looks ancient, but the building appears new-ish.


Again in the Haymarket. Two sides of the same building, above and below.
The former is a north face we hadn't caught before. The latter, (below), has been featured previously.

The Trip to Nebraska


We returned to Nebraska for the holidays, and picked up a few signs that we'd missed on previous visits.


This building is in Lincoln's Haymarket.


Specifically, it's at S and 8th.

From the Mailbox


This little beauty was sent to us from Omaha, by our Western Field Agent, Mr. D.L. Hudson.
He said it was tucked away in an alley and he was lucky to catch it.

Three Revisits, and a Newbie


Up along McMicken, around the Mockbee building.


How this is sheared off is fascinating.
Obviously, there was a building there, protecting what we see now.
But someone took the time to remove what was above the now absent roofline.


And a scant 20 yards away, our new find:


Faded, but still visible, if not legible.

Potpourri


Court and Walnut. Most recently, it was a fast food Mexican restaurant. Before that, fast food Chinese. Before that, a corner grocery store, if this Salem cigarette poster is to be believed.


Vine and Liberty. Previously spotted here
What's interesting is that the old sign was hung up on the wall, not painted on it.
But still, there's a ghost.


7th, between Vine and Race.


Court Street.


We don't remember. We believe it's on Vine in OTR. 


Main Street.


City Hall.


Race.

Big Boy Reveal


Again a tip of the hat to Mr. R. Salerno for alerting us to this recent uncovering on 6th Street,
between Main and Walnut. You can read more at his blog.


On the upper left of this former Big Boy, there's another ghost sign.


And to the left, another.


Dissected by a shadow here.
