Ghost Sign on Lesia Ukrayinka Theater

A few year ago, I came across this ghost sign when only a small part was visible. Fortunately, the rest of the sign was recently liberated:

Before & After

SIECZKARNIE 
KULTYWATORY
MŁOCARNIE 
KIERATY
CHAFF-CUTTERS
TILLERS
THRESHERS
HORSE MILLS
It seems at some point this space sold farming machinery, though I haven’t been able to find any details about this so uncertain when. These signs look different from the ones found on this old photograph of the building.
The building was built in 1911. At first it was a “Catholic House,” affiliated with St. Anna’s Church which is located near it. In the interwar period it housed the Small City Theater. After the war, it was a theater of musical comedy. In 1946 the building was given to the Carpathian Military District. It is currently the Lesia Ukrayinka Lviv Drama Theater.
