Wall repaint—99 years later

Dear SignCraft, Recently I had the excellent opportunity to restore a Gold Medal Flour wall sign in DeGraff, Ohio. I used 1-Shot paint, fitches, sweat, and got rained out at least four times on this 65-by-17-ft. brick wall. The wall was uncovered when the adjacent building caught fire and had to be demolished. A little research revealed that the sign was painted in 1915! I really admired this wall when I saw it, and was glad to have the opportunity to repaint it—almost 100 years later. There is more information on my website at www.jonlikestodraw.com/2016/10/gold-medal-flour-mural.html.
