Warehouse Wednesday: Ghost sign in London

Ghost sign

The work taking place to gentrify the King's Cross area have revealed, or at least made easier to photograph, this lovely ghost sign near the station previously obscured by some wooden shops. 

I've no idea how old these letters are, but 3/4 of a century would seem a reasonable guess. We forget just how much advertising there was around in "the good old days". Paint something like this on the front of your listed building now and watch the local busybodies get upset!
