Lecture Series: Fading Ads of Cincinnati

  • Delhi Park Lodge 5125 Foley Road Cincinnati, OH, 45238 United States

"Hidden down alleyways, on street corners or on the bricks above the cityscape, Cincinnati’s fading advertisements hide in plain sight. These ghost signs still tout their wares and services, remnants of a bygone era. Each sign has a vivid story behind it unique to its era, product and craftsmanship. “Wall dogs” like sign artist Gus Holthaus left their marks on the city. A sign for the Beehive, the club and restaurant at the top of the arena, reminds residents of Cincinnati’s pro hockey team, the Stingers. Not many can remember “the Other Place,” but a hand-painted advertisement still adorns a city wall."
