Brewery District

We love finding old photographs of Cincinnati. 
Especially when they include signs before they went ghost.

And we especially love it when the building is still standing and we can compare then and now.

On McMicken, to the west of Elm Street.

Ghost Signs from a Ghost Town

Broadwater, Nebraska. Not technically a ghost town, as 128 people call it home, as of 2010.
Our Western Field Agent, Mr. D.L. Hudson points out the refurbished Coca-Cola sign.

And the Lazy U Motel, a nice little piece of Americana.

We took a tour of Cincinnati's ghost signs, Saturday morning.
Partly on the streetcar, partly walking.
A lovely morning.

It was inspired, in part by Ronnie Salerno's book:

Which, if you don't already have it, is a must-have.
