Ghost mural

A fading ghost mural saying "C.V. Woninginrichting P.P.W. Randoe" and "Randoe is stijl" on a wall at the Gierstraat in Haarlem. Searching for more information I found several old newspaper clippings from the 1940s and 1950s that contained adds by Randoe, who was a home furnisher.
"C.V." stands for "Commanditaire Vennootschap" (Limited partnership business entity) I think?

Participating in Monday Mural.

  5. Leuk dat het na zo lange tijd nog zichtbaar is. In sommige oude steden zie je ze soms nog inderdaad.

  9. Isn't it amazing that this ghost sign has survived all this time. By doing so, it deserves to be preserved. Good catch. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
