Ghost Signs Alive, an all-volunteer Do-it-Yourself Lowell Project Team, has spent the past year researching faded historical signs in downtown Lowell. During their debut illumination event starting December 18, the nearly invisible J.C. Ayer sign on the building at 172 Middle Street will be recreated on the building using a projector. A community project, GSA has been the result of a sustained collaboration between local researchers, artists, historians, archivists, and businesses.
The Project Team updates their Facebook page with fun facts about J.C. Ayer Co., and even more exciting, the talented team at Red Antler created a batch of limited edition soap inspired by Ayer’s Cherry Pectoral. The team is raising funds by selling this soap along with five distinctive postcards designed by the team and printed by Owl Stamp–from a single postcard for $1.50 for a $15 for an entire gift basket. We’re proud to be part of Lowell’s Virtual Market.
