St. Louis Ghost Signs Video

Nice video about ghost signs throughout St. Louis:

From KETC, LIVING ST. LOUIS Producer Jim Kirchherr finds out the truth behind “Ghost signs,” faded advertisements painted on brick walls of rehabbed loft spaces and vacant buildings around St. Louis. Theses signs offer a glimpse into a busier, simpler age when blacksmiths were prominent and specialty shops lined the streets of the Wellington Loop.

  1. Great video! Ghosted artwork is one of those forgotten arts in the design world, yet the technique is so beautiful. I love how it combines the history and the signage of the building so effortlessly. Thank you for sharing.
