Ghost Sign: Vandalia, IL

This 1960s photo is from the "Vandalia Memories" page on Facebook. It's the old railroad warehouse that once stood along Sixth Street side the depot (which is in the background). The warehouse was fazed a long time ago, and the depot burned a few years ago. A childhood memory of mine is noticing the C of the Coca-Cola trademark, on the left side of the billboard that mostly obscures those cursive letters, as we took Sixth Street into downtown Vandalia. You can barely see that C in this old picture. Why do children notice and are fascinated by certain things? Even when I was a little kid, I liked things that were old, from times before my own.
