On Mauldeth Road West with a ghost sign

Now there are a growing number of us who are fascinated by ghost signs.

These are the painted signs dating from the late 19th and early 20th centuries which advertised products and businesses, most of which have long since disappeared.

So these fading and often peeling names are all that are left of a bit of our past.

All of which is a lead in to Neil Simpson’s picture of the gable end on Mauldeth Road West which he proudly told me, “look what I found on the side of a shop on Mauldeth Road West - a Ghost Sign for Wills Gold Flake Cigarettes for Andrew Simpson."

And then went on to supply a link to Wills Gold Flake.

And that pretty much is that leaving me only to thank Neil who has come up with some pretty neat ghost signs over the years.
