I was waiting for the bus to pick me back up. I had spent the day wandering the fabulous city of Savannah, Georgia, when I looked up to find this ghost sign. I love old advertising signs that haven’t been washed over or lost to construction. This one was for Bayer Pills. I’m guessing this sign was painted on the red brick well before 1899, since that was the year when Bayer trademarked the now famous moniker, Aspirin. If I am correct, it’s pretty amazing to see this sign selling Bayer Pills.
