Downtown Anderson, IN is being nicely kept up, even with the loss of many jobs. Anderson is also home to Lee's Drug Store and this great ghost sign.

This ghost sign on the wall of this look to be early turn of the century building features advertising for "The justly famed General Arthur cigar", "Lee's Family Tourist" and "medicine Case". A look at this wall is a distinct throwback to the days when the old main streets of towns were the central hub for businesses. 05-09
