E. Rosenfeld & Co. Faultless Night Shirts & Pajamas

This incredible faded advertising sign can be found on S. Paca Street just above Lombard Street. Both sides of the building advertise Faultless Night Shirts and Pajamas. This is another old ghost sign that I believe could be one of the oldest in Baltimore. By all the old advertising I was able to find online, it seems Faultless Pajamas were very popular back in the day.

Same view in 1936. By the way, that's historic Davidge Hall in the foreground. It has been in continuous use for medical education since 1813, the oldest such structure in the United States.
1911 paper ad for Faultless Night Shirts.
