Over the last few years, several of Lviv’s ghost signs have been liberated—by which I mean curious people/ghost sign lovers took into their own hands (literally) to expose signs from under layers of paint and plaster, accelerating the natural process of plaster crumbling due to age and weather. I’ve documented (and at times helped) the progress of several liberation efforts.
Finally after about 4 years this Lviv ghost sign has been almost fully liberated. In the interwar period, this building housed a the Gottfried Hotel, as well as a shoe store.
