Architectural Ghosts

First up tonight: Ghost Ads -- You see kids, back in olden times, before pop-ups, pop-overs, pop-unders, before banner ads and even before the internet (can you imagine?!) people used to advertise by painting on the sides of buildings downtown. Here are a few ghostly remainders. (via Lilek's)

Next up: Ghost Buildings -- Welcome to the sport of Urban Exploration. You're Columbus, and that creepy subway tunnel, that defunct hotel, that abandoned insane asylum, that's your New World. Links aplenty, but may I recommend starting with either the gorgeous Dark Passage or the sprawling website/'zine Infiltration.
