Ghost Ads and Wall Dogs

"Ghost ads" are the remnants of advertising signs once painted on the sides of brick walls by tradesmen known as "wall dogs". Many of these urban treasures can be hidden for decades, only to be revealed by the demolition of an adjoining building.

Forgotten NY provides an interesting look at ghost ads in the Big Apple, though sadly, some other parts of the site seem to be unavailable.
