Shots Around the Sloop: Ghost Sign

A ghost sign is a term for old hand painted advertising or signage that has been preserved on a building for an extended period of time, whether by actively keeping it or choosing not to destroy it.

So where in the Sloop is this ghost sign?

Update: FGFM is almost correct! This is on the east side of Wabash (between 13th and 14th) and is the on the south wall of the building next to Utopia. Here is a better picture of the surroundings:

Man, I walk by that like every day, but I can't place it. I'll keep my eyes peeled. I think FGFM is probably right.

Fun game. Do more.
