This is a stretch but I am making a leap of faith that the GRANDAS on this pentimento is associated with the Montreal resident Jose Granda – cigar maker – immigrant from Spain. Below is the obituary of his daughter Mary Cook.

Obituary

COOK, Mary (nee Granda) August 10th, 1924 – October 13th, 2012 

Passed away at Father Dowd Memorial Home at the age of eighty-eight after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s. Mary’s late father, Jose Granda, and his brothers were among the first immigrants from Spain to settle in Montreal in 1900 as founding partners in Jose Granda Cigars Ltd on St-Laurent Boulevard. She was predeceased by her brothers Pepe, Adolpho, Armando, Domingo and John, and by her sisters Feliz, Blanca, Luz and Paulina.

 

Beloved wife of Mr. Douglas James Cook and devoted mother to Linda (Bill Dalziel), Eric (Kathleen Casey) and Nina (Peter Walker). Loving Tita to Ryan, Kristin, Michael, Morgan, Andrew, Stuart, Michael, Maria, Evan and Casey. She will be greatly missed by her great-granddaughter Maya, her nieces and nephews as well as many other relatives and friends. 

 

Family will receive condolences at Kane and Fetterly Funeral Home (5301, Decarie Boulevard (corner Isabella), Montreal, H3W 3C4) on Friday, November 2nd from 2 to 5 p.m. and from 7 to 9 p.m. A memorial mass will be celebrated at St-Ignatius Parish (4455 West Broadway, Montreal) on Saturday, November 3rd at 10:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations to Alzheimer Society would be appreciated.

A little research unveiled one Frank Meinhart who not only painted signs but was a well known Montana wildlife artist, even exhibiting at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.. Northwest Digital Archives has a comprehensive bio of Frank as well as photos of his various signs.The Ghost Sign Weekly – Montana’s Fading Ads
