Ghost signs of the former William Whiteley's Depositories, Kensington Olympia, London

Not much time for commentary this week I'm afraid, but just about enough time to share these pictures of the signage on the former William Whiteley's Depository, which sits alongside the railway line heading south from Kensington Olympia station. It was a bit of a challenge to find a good angle, especially with the position of the sun, but hopefully these pictures show what once must have been a majestic sight, running around at least two sides of this mighty building.

The railway line that can be seen here is the London Overground line and also the District line between Earl's Court and Kensington Olympia.
