Coca-Cola and other ghost signs (nine of them?!) in Galveston, Texas, on 1880s-era building

In Galveston, this one side of the Dulitz building (built in the 1880s) sports the remnants of at least nine -- count 'em, nine -- ghost signs! (Includes the Coca-Cola ad that was "restored" in the 1990s.)

 

Here's the other side of the building -- showing other ghost signs -- after an attached building had been removed: www.flickr.com/photos/mollyblock/6934283344/in/pool-10285...
