In search of Winnipeg's "Ghost Signs" !

If you look up high and in the back lanes of downtown Winnipeg you'll see hundreds of "ghost signs". Each year, their numbers grow fewer due to demolitions, new paint jobs or graffiti.

Matt Cohen is leading a walking on Saturday to capture photographs of as these many signs as possible. Once collected, the history of the company, building or product will be researched and they will be plotted on a map. 

Join in an see a part of Winnipeg's history that you may not have noticed before !
