A small, random collection of London Ghost Signs

Today I am posting another assortment of pictures I took whilst drifting around London during various psychogeography inspired wanders. Not quite as random as my previous post as these ones all have a ghost sign theme.

I'm not sure how long the ghost sign in the first two pictures has been re-exposed for. I would imagine that it was probably partially, or even fully, obscured by the building which has been demolished. Very hard to make out what it says though. It's on the north side of Oxford Street, just west of Tottenham Court Road tube station.

This one is however a little clearer and is one of several United Dairies buildings scattered around London.

And finally in today's short post, a ghost sign somewhere between Clapham Junction and Wandsworth Town.

So, another short but hopefully sweet posting today as I work my way through the backlog of pictures.
