It’s less common to find hand-painted signs inside the entranceways and corridors of buildings—but in Lviv there are a few examples of such ghost signs, which served different functions.
Kniazha Romana Street
I found a few Polish-language ghost signs in the corridor of a residential building in Lviv’s center. I haven’t been able to decipher them, but during the interwar period this building housed a oil industry union, a union of petroleum products, an advertising agency, an antiquarian shop, and a sheet music shop—so possibly the signs are leftover from one or more of these establishments.
Ferentsia Lista Street
This is a unique ghost sign as it is actually an announcement to tenants of the building that is prohibited to sublet an apartment without the permission of the owner.
