One of the biggest projects of the year so far has been the newly refurbished Ivar’s Restaurant on the waterfront in Seattle. During the renovation they discovered the sign of the company which had occupied Pier 54 before 1915, before the building was expanded and the sign covered up. The old sign was in disrepair and had to be encapsulated so they asked me to replicate the sign to look like it had been there for a 100 years. The term is “Pentimento”. The sign is about 160 feet long. The original sign read Galbraith – Bacon & Co. as you can see in the photo of the building from 1912
