A ghost sign from a shop we will all remember ............ F W Woolworths

Now the thing about ghost signs is that you assume they will all be very old.

And as a general rule that is in the case.

Many of those still just about with us date from the 19th or early 20th centuries and they advertise products and businesses’ which have long vanished.

But sometimes like this one taken by Bill Summers they are of our more recent past.

Here in Streford Precinct is the ghost of a company that even my kids remember.

Location; Stretford
