Having looked at the ghost signs of R.B. Wing and Meginnis Electric on Liberty Street, we thought we’d present some of the other familiar ghost signs from around Albany. Some are painted, some are not. In one case, the business is still going, so technically its advertisement isn’t a ghost, but let’s not be pedantic.
John Mulligan was good enough to hep us to the identify of our unidentified ghost sign shown above, the one at North Pearl and Sheridan – it’s for Harry Simmons furniture. Harry Simmons claimed to inspire earthquake-proof confidence in his furniture; the front of his building has certainly stood the test of time.
