Ghostsigns archive

It's been a busy week for ghost signs. I found some 'new' ones in N17 and Sam and I have been busy checking the proofs for the postcards we have created for the launch of the archive.


  1. I love ghost signs. They are like a forgotten memory of a time gone by. There are a few in Spitalfields - one is on the corner and has something to do with paper bags (but it has been repainted). Glad someone is capturing them.

  2. Thanks for your comment Jacqui. I am aware of the one you refer to in Spitalfields but i am just not so keen on the ones that have ben retouched over the years, especially if the product is no longer availale. Though i do have a snap of this one in Stepney: http://www.flickr.com/photos/janepbr/3072012052/
