Ghostsigns

A new online archive records painted advertising across the country. The History of Advertising Trust launches its Ghostsigns Archive today, documenting and archiving painted advertising on buildings across the UK. Painted signs were once common but have been replaced by printed billboards, and those that survive are fading fast, or being demolished during building work.
