This project [Link expired] is seeking to create a comprehensive google map of ghostsigns in San Francisco.  It is run by Kasey Smith of the Perception Filter blog (recommended) and has already made significant progress.

Many of the stories surrounding the documented signs are published on the blog, including the reveal of the one pictured following the destruction of an adjacent building which lost the sign it hosted in the process.  As Kasey says, ‘you win some, you lose some‘.

More Perception Filter ghostsigns posts here, and more posts from me about mapping ghostsigns here and here.
