While the rest of Camden burned, was torn town and razed, and neglected, this wonderful add from 1904 somehow survived, was left untouched and looks almost as it did 100 years ago. The origins of the building & its owners are painted on its side.

A vintage Coca Cola ghost sign still remains on the side of a local eatery built in the late 1800s. The ad is from the 1950s (possible earlier) and the ad beneath that is from the turn of the 20th century.

This 107-year old building has a ridiculously old sign which can still be seen. It is easier to see when it is wet which is how I found it as it recently rained and the wall was still kind of wet.

Apparently, the Boston Shoe Repair store used this building at one time in the past. Now all that is left is its painted and slightly peeling wall advertisement.
