Fashion Stables

Northwest Fence & Wire Works Building, 1911

This is a nice set of ghost signs, fairly weathered and mostly readable except for the windows cut into the wall during building restoration. The center reads:
FASHION STABLES
The Fence Builders

Then on the left side:
... For All Loose
... and Hard Rock
Sand and Gravel Screens

See these beauties at NE 11th and Glisan.

It is too good to read about the Wire Works Building and I glad to see they are choosing to preserve.
