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.

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.
