Search for Ghost Signs

London has seen a great drive to protect old signs in recent years, culminating in a national online Ghost Signs Archive, supported by The History of Advertising Trust.


Your author has always enjoyed spotting ghost signs, such as the one above on Old Street, and whilst his camera and eye for a sign may not be as brilliant as the very talented Jane of Jane's London, he gets a great deal of pleasure from just looking at them.

It is interesting to think about how the style of advertising, and the places in which the adverts are found have changed over the years.
