Was leaving the city yesterday afternoon and spotted these #ghostsigns... it's not often I stumble upon ones I haven't seen in bmore. Love these!
Found an interesting historical article about it as well.... [1942, Sylvan J. Sollod (1911-2003), known as “Doc,” purchased Marmor’s Pharmacy at Fort Avenue and Webster Street. The son of Polish immigrants David and Fannie Sollod, he grew up in Richmond and Baltimore and graduated from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy in the 1930s. He worked in and managed other pharmacies around the city before turning Marmor’s into his own business, Sollod’s Pharmacy. In addition to prescriptions and medicines, Sollod’s Pharmacy served drinks and ice cream at the soda fountain, as was common in drug stores and pharmacies in the late 19th and early-mid 20th centuries.] #paintedsign#advertising#ghostsignbusters#ghostsign#signage#fortavepharmacy#sylvanjsollod#1930s#1940s#latergram
Mayer's original name was Big Bug Station but was renamed in 1882 for John Mayer.. no not that John Mayer.
It has the coolest historical block I've maybe ever come across, even if it is only three buildings or so. Small town charm lives on here for sure. It's one of those places I would definitely consider escaping to if Phoenix ever starts melting.
