Double Coke and a smoke

Tucked in this alley in downtown Boone,Iowa, is this remarkable 'triple' ghost sign. The original layer featured an ad for Henry George Tobacco with subsequent ads for Coca-Cola.

 

Painted by the Thomas Cusack Sign Co. of Chicago, it helps advertise for the Rocho Bros. Meat Market once located here.

 

Many thanks to Mike (Vintage Roadtrip) for finding this. I can't believe I missed this last year when I passed through.
