London History

.’. Ghost Signs .’.

Ghost Signs are defined as “remains of advertising that was once painted by hand onto the brickwork of buildings”.

My love for the Ghost Signs has grown in the past years. I use to see them and not really care about it, but lately everytime I see one I  have to stop, take some photos and just start imagining how it was long time ago.

If you see one “ghost sign” around the city is just like opening a door, with time you will start noticing them more often. If you find one lost and abandoned take a photo….believe me at some point you will have more then you imagine.

And also try to figure out the whole advertisiment, some of them (like the one in from of a shop that I took) really gives you nice clues.

London is a city that will always give you something to do. Just embrace it!!!
