Ghost Sign #14 -- December 29, 2013

This may not be a ghost sign, because the Old Ship Saloon has been open at Pacific and Battery since 1851, when it opened in the beached ship Arkansas.  On the other hand, Henry Klee took over in 1897, so he is only on the premises in spirit. 

We took BART to the Embarcadero and walked out Davis to Pacific.  Christmas decorations were being taken down at some buildings.  We walked up Pacific, where I took this photo, to Grant.  We went over to Ross Alley and the Fortune Cookie Factory, which had a line out the door.  We got some cookies for family.  We went to a store on Grant to get a scroll calendar for my mom.  Then we went to the Irish Bank for lunch.  We stopped by Macy's to see the animals in the windows, then took BART back.
