This classic design is another example of the Walldog’s efforts to restore classic wall designs throughout the world. Many of these murals of old can be found in the form of “ghost signs” throughout the country. Many ghost signs still available for public view are from the 1890s to 1930s. However, ghost signs from as late as the 1970s have been found as well. As signage advertising formats changed, less durable signs appeared in the later 20th century and the presence of ghost signs from the second half of the 20th century is less present. Ghost signs often offer advertising allowing historians a glimpse into old advertising. Ghost signs, while historic, often are on buildings that still are being used by other tenants. Many ghost signs are painted over. In some cases, they have been saved. The Walldogs mimic many of the styles of these old ghost signs & the painters who painted them.
