Half a Ghost Sign



Took this a few years ago while looking for the remains of a disused canal, the building bay have been one of the wharf houses near where the basin of the Wilt's & Berks canal used to be. The old advertising sign still hangs in though the one round the corner was cut in half by an extension to the building.

  6. That's a good find Bill. I always like to know the previous history of a building and sins like this can tell us so much.
