Glidden Ghost Sign

I spotted this ghost sign along a very narrow walkway between 2 buildings so it was hard to take a decent pic. If you look carefully it is for Glidden Endurance Paints - Varnish and the bottom line says J P Parker which must have been the name of the store where the paint was sold. And right below where it says Glidden there is small writing that says Everywhere Everytime. The building now houses a barber shop.

Another great ghost sign find. Glidden is still in business even if J P Parker isn't.

Indeed nice sign.

This sign may be a disappearing ghost, but interestingly, Glidden Paints continues strong! I think that's a colorful thought!

Oh my, I'd forgotten about Glidden Paints!

Looks like the Glidden Paint on the ghost sign held up fairly well. That is a good ad for the paint.
