North Coast Seed. Co.

North Coast Seed Co. Building, 1911

This old brick warehouse has a great selection of old signs, including "ACME ROLLED OATS," "PURINA BREAKFAST FOODS," and "OFFICE NORTH COAST SEED CO." on its north face. The east wall is a little more difficult to read, with maybe "FLOUR AND FEED" toward the top and of course "NORTH COAST SEED CO." at the bottom. Altogether a fine example of ghost signage at N. Albina Avenue and N. Tillamook Street, but easily visible as you pass on N. Interstate AVenue.

Now artist studios, you can read more about the history of this building here.
