Ghost Sign Results!
Thanks to everyone who entered – we had a great time looking at all of the glimpses into yesteryear….
Grand Prize Winner Sam Roberts will be receiving a Pulse of the Planet t-shirt and CD for his entry. We especially liked this fountain pen ad, a writing utensil whose time has passed.
Runners Up Lawrence O’Toole and Ben Hoare will each receive a Pulse of the Planet CD.
We loved Lawrence’s photo of an old movie house advertising its “Talkies”
Ben Hoare’s entry was a veritable palimpsest of signage. (Check out this Pulse of the Planet program for a definition of palimpsest!) We have to think that lead would not receive such a high billing today!
