924 Geary #1

A riot of faded color between two residential buildings on Geary. Two ghost signs are visible here, the lower one the ghostly geometric lines of a Wrigley's Spearmint Gum ad, the other a barely decipherable sign for the Hotel Erle. Less well preserved than it's twin on Polk Street, this Wrigley's ad is nevertheless a great find for the eagle-eyed.
