Wrigley’s Spearmint Gum Ghost Sign. Lowville, NY

Wrigley's Spearmint Gum Ghost Sign, Lowville New York

Here’s another ghost sign from Lowville, New York. This one’s on the side of what’s now Smitty’s Smoke Shop.

Spearmint was the second chewing gum flavour Wrigley’s introduced on the market. The first had been Juicy Fruit earlier in 1893.

This sign is relatively easy to date. If you look carefully below the word “spearmint” you can just about make out the words “The Perfect Gum”. This was the slogan used by Wrigley between the two world wars.
