Ghost Signs Near Hubbard & Wood

Saw the first one after I left the Printers Ball in July. Simplex Wire is located in Boston, but I doubt this is the same place. There are other helpful words, as well.

Then there's the graffiti guy who tells you what was being sold in the now vacant building on 71st. Back to Hubbard Street, the3rd and 4th photos are really tough.At some point, it would be easier finding an old phone book from the 1920s.

The last photo is on Western. This is all you get, the rest is weeds and part of a shed. Is the first word Fox? There are many Fox Deluxe signs hidden in the city, evidently they ran a smart beer campaign in the 40s and 50s.
