Aurora Cycle

As befits a former railroad town, Aurora, Illinois has quite a few old industrial buildings dotting the downtown area. Similarly, there are still a few ghost signs hanging in there, usually hidden around the backs of these old warehouses and factories. This one hangs over the back door of what was at one time a factory, next door to a repurposed Allied Van Lines depot.

I've lived around here most of my life and have never seen this sign till last week. Just goes to show that you should always take a walk down the side streets and back alleys.
