Lincoln, La Lustre

If the ghost sign for Lincoln washing machines in Saint-André-de-Cubzac has somehow lost its colours, this one in the small hamlet of La Lustre is still relatively well preserved.
For some information about the Lincoln brand, please refer to the post about the aforementioned ghost sign.

The fact this ghost sign includes the town where the authorized dealer, Blanc, was located gives us an idea about its age. Indeed the two municipalities of Prignac-et-Cazelles and Marcamps merged in 1965 to form Prignac-et-Marcamps. Thus this ghost sign was painted before.

S Salvaco
2. Pce Tourny, Bordeaux
Machines à laver
Blanc agent agréé Prignac et Cazelles

The name of the painter and what may be his phone number appear just underneath this ghost sign:


The advertising space on this wall was managed by the Société Salvaco, based in Bordeaux, as was the case for the wall in Saint-André-de-Cubzac.

Location: D669, La Lustre, Bourg, Gironde / Pictures taken in May 2012
