Great VFYW today - reminded me of a website devoted to mapping Ghost Signs here in Chicago, produced by a grad student at the School of the Art Institute.  It's an interactive map of the city; click on an area, and a map appears with red dots; click on a dot and you get a photo of the ghost sign at that location.  A great piece of interactive scholarship, and a great way to while away idle lunchtime online minute.  Or hours.
