Ghost Signs in Tallinn

This ghost sign I saw through the window of my hostel room. It is on an former furniture factory in a courtyard. The sign says “Mööblitööstus,” which is Estonian for “furniture manufacture.”
  

Two restored hand-painted signs from when this building used to house a pharmacy and a gallery. Now it is a consulate of the Russian Embassy.
