Before the invention of modern billboards, sign painters used to paint advertisements and company names directly onto building walls. They were once prolific in many industrialized cities. Most have faded with time, becoming nearly unrecognizable.  These gradually fading painted signs are known as ghost signs.  These signs can be found on the side of a building on James St. N in Hamilton, across from the Armoury.
