Ghost Sign - Wheat Manna - Oaksdale WA

Ghost Signs, are old hand-painted signs advertising various products, usually on buildings and kept for nostalgia or because of neglect.

:  :  :


on the side of a one-story red brick building

in the small Whitman County town of Oaksdale,

‘Wheat Manna’ is advertised.

:  :  :

Upon a closer look,

you can see that the lower set of boarded up windows

were cut through the brick wall after the sign was painted,

and that it also says

‘P L Crawford Druggist.’

Wheat Manna,

I love that.

:  :  :

I have searched a number of times

for information about it

but have never found any information about the product

or the company making it.

I have seen similar ‘Wheat Manna’ ghost signs

painted on several old buildings

in other small southeastern

Washington rural towns.

If I had to guess,

I would say it was a hot cereal,

perhaps bread,

or maybe even a flour brand.

Speaking of hot cereal,

I think I’ll go make some oatmeal

for breakfast.
