Salina Hidden Treasure

On Main Street in Salina, hiding behind old buildings and fences, a hidden treasure was uncovered. This beautiful billboard would have to be dated back to the early 1900’s. It has character and style. Take a walk down Main Street to see for yourself. A billboard painted on the side of a building in 1900 was just an advertisement but after all these years it is now art.

Does anyone know who the artist is?

Any ideas about what is being advertised? Can you interpret any of the writing? Post your comments.

How can we preserve this for future generations to see?

The art of sign painting is becoming a lost art because of the modernization of machines and computers. Check out this video about sign painters:
