Just when you thought it was safe to go out and stop worrying about ghost signs

Now it has been a while since we had a ghost sign so I was very pleased that Graham came across this one on Stockport Road today and sent it across.

I don’t really think there is much more to say other than it is a fine example and all credit to whoever decided to save it.

I did think about an in depth piece of research on the Stockport and Industrial Equitable Co-operative Society but that’s for another time.

And as ever if anyone has a favourite or just one that has stood the test of time please pass it to me so we can all share in this little bit of our industrial and commerical past.

Thank you Graham

Location; Stockport Road Cheadle
