Murals and Billboards...pt.2

When the casinos came to town, they painted murals on a few of their buildings. While not necessarily advertising, at least the murals are in the spirit of the Old West.

This building is currently Cripple Creek City Hall and was once the
main Fire Station for the town

'Tis the Season... pt.1

For advertising...
A recent blog post by Debra She Who Seeks, got me thinking about advertising. And Billboards. And old timey advertising. 
Before billboards became prevalent, painting an advertisement on the side of a building for a product or business was a common practice. My little town of Cripple Creek has a number of such murals. While most are of newer origins, there are a few that could pass for something originating in the late 1890's or early 1900's. Be sure to click on the individual pictures to read some of the advertising. It's a hoot!
I'll have more murals - mostly modern - tomorrow.
