Ghost Sign - 304 S Main Hillsboro

Selz Royal Blue Shoes $3.50

John and Donna Reynolds are remodeling the former Jim's Style Shop building in Hillsboro. While removing plaster in an upstairs apartment they uncovered a ghost sign for Selz Royal Blue Shoes $3.50. The advertisement was painted on the South side of John's Pharmacy building which was formerly Finley's Pharmacy. They plan on cleaning the wall, applying a clear coat to preserve the advertisement and the 100+ year old hand painted artwork will become permanent part of the apartment decor.
