Ghost signage reveal on 5th Street



Workers renovating 317 E. Fifth St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue uncovered this ghost signage today ... Derek Berg spotted this earlier today... Wines & Lager Beer (early BEER STORE?)... I can't quite make out the first name (Cosrt?)...



Updated 1/27

I looked at the city tax photos for this address ... a business is in the space, though it doesn't have this wine/lager signage...



Can't quite make out the sign ...

we gotta know if this got saved. I don't mean that some fucks bought it to resell to some shitbags so they can put it in their condo, it needs to be preserved for the neighborhood.

I guess "lager beer" was the craft beer of its day. That is quite interesting.

Yes there was a bar there when I moved across the street thirty years ago where all the police would hang out.

Look at that amazing shoemaker/cobbler sign protruding from the building closest to the precinct!
