This ghost sign was recently uncovered at 5438 N. Clark in Andersonville (a couple blocks north of Berwyn, near the Brown Elephant resale shop) when a building adjacent to it was torn down. This sign is believed to be over 100 years old. – Katie Levin
Katie- Michael Hirsch recently provided a link to your image through the Forgotten Chicago FB Page. The ad was featured by FAB earlier this year when it was brought to my attention by Mike Merritt who shot it last summer. I love how the “deck” has progressed. Lucky neighbors.

Stumbled across your site while on the net and love it!
I’ve attached a photo of a Coca Cola ad that was uncovered this summer when a building was demolished. This was in a row of buildings on the 5400 block of North Clark St. in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.
Thanks Mike and I hope you enjoy the book! Check out Mike’s new start-up business, REDSHIP – a college care package company with a great retro logo and web design.
