Waiting for the bus in downtown Seattle this caught my eye. Not a great example of wall ads but it reminded me of some great flickr groups: ghost signs, wall ads, faded signage, old wall ads. Interesting how advertising was once so integral to buildings, but now posters are usually limited to designated sites and quickly vanish. It's as if businesses were more confident in the past. Big displays of who they were painted on their building walls, their business names etched in stone.
