Ghost Signs – A. Ross Plumbing

I always like finding old painted signs for long gone businesses. This one is in the alley in the Lincoln & Tecumseh Road area. The plumbing place is long gone, but the sign remains.

The sign says “Since 1923” and the phone number listed is a 254- exchange, so the business must have survived beyond the letter exchange days…

Here’s his obituary from the Windsor Star – October 9, 1974:

In order for the math to work, the business must have still been going at the time of his passing in 1974.

You never know what’s lurking in those alleys…

If you haven’t ordered your calendar yet, don’t delay… The presale ends Thursday.
