Just north of Omaha's new TD Ameritrade Stadium, there's a warehouse district, with a cluster of ghost signs. This particular building is at 12th and Izard.

We'd like to thank our Western Field Agent, Mr. D.L. Hudson for not only driving us to the airport, but also stopping so we could run around and capture these beauties.

Dr. Strang

On a recent visit back to Nebraska, we stopped in Strang for lunch, and remembered taking this ghost sign from the last time we were here.

But we also noticed some faint lettering off to the side.

Smoke Black Peter Cigars

There was a bar at 12th and Race.  It was the kind of place that opened at 6 in the morning and was closed at night. 
With gentrification all around, it finally closed for good.
Now, someone is working on reopening it, and their work uncovered these.

We don't feature glass ghost signs often here, because, well, the nature of glass is to break. 
And typically, most we find are not that old or interesting.
Until now.

We believe this one, on the 12th Street side, is an advert for Bold Cigars.

Bored of Elections?

The Board of Elections of Hamilton County used to be on Sycamore, between 6th and 7th, before moving up to the 800 block of Broadway.

Offered to us by Mr. B. Johnson from his recent visit to Columbus, Ohio.

A good ghost sign hunter is always ready to capture a shot at a moment's notice.
