Coca Cola / Senart's Oyster House

8th and G SE, Washington D.C.

Some lovely green color left in these:

Drink Coca Cola It's Refreshing 5c

Senart's Oyster House

Unfortunately I wasn't able to capture many ghost signs while visiting the east coast; either they were a blur as I whizzed past on the train or it was too dark and I was too far away to capture them. I did manage to get this fantastic Coca Cola / Senart's ad since it was street level and very easily accessible. This is my second Coca Cola sign, neither of which are in Seattle. I believe that's "2 and 0" in baseball speak.

interesting that you photographed them at night. Was this from existing lighting? Do you think some signs read better this way?

Ghosted artwork is well, "haunting." Thank you for sharing.

Great blog! I found you while searching for H.W.Baker Linen Co.

They have recently uncovered a great Coca-Cola sign on the old bottling plant in Eugene OR. It's near campus on Franklin Blvd. Definitely worth a look!
