This intriguing book profiles hand-painted advertising from across the city, and investigates the companies that commissioned the signs that now appear faded—like ghosts—on the brickwork of buildings. It is a snapshot of a time that is almost forgotten, but which lives on through the sometimes haunting presence of ghost signs on the city’s streets.
