i've walked past this painted advert many times and always thought how lovely it is. never actually had a camera with me to record it until last week. thought i'd better take a photo before some eejit paints over it. love the layers and the different typefaces and the word CHOPS. such a skilled trade, hats off to the signwriters of old. makes me a bit sad that now it's all about internet pop ups and horrible typefaces and shiny temporary mega adverts. boo.

i like the word ghostsigns and the fact that people care about recording and preserving this kind of advertising ephemera. lots more examples and information here.
