‘Fading Ads Of New York City’ Chronicles Ghost Signs

New York photographer Frank Jump has a new book out that chronicles “ghost signs,” the fading street ads around New York City.

In Fading Ads of New York City, Jump documents these ads and points out the fake fading signs. For example, one fading ad for Planters Nuts on a brick wall in Ridgewood, Queens may look like its from the 1930s, but it is probably not.

The Daily News has more: “First, it faces the rising sun but still seems remarkably colorful. And Mr. Peanut doesn’t look as lanky as in other early Planters ads. Conclusion: The ad probably dates back only to the 1980s, when it was created, some believe, for the movie ‘Brighton Beach Memoirs.’”
