Restored

I spotted this restored ghost sign on Peter St in the Entertainment District.  Blackwell& Company was established in 1873 and the original sign was on the building until 2015 when an extensive restoration of the building included renewing the sign. I think the building now houses offices and studios but I'm not sure.

Good to see these old signs restored. Don't think this is common.

Well worth preserving.

It looks brand new! That building is looking a little squeezed in that spot with all if its tall neighbors.

Oh this looks so Perth Pat, not the restored ghost sign 😉 the old and new mix of architecture.

Restoring ghost signs is not the norm. I'm glad they did.

There are a few ghost signs out here that I'd love to see restored like this one. It's nice to see that kind of care and attention.
