Harborne ghost sign - Birmingham
Harborne ghost sign - Birmingham
This ghost sign, advertising the services of builders A W Reynolds and Son, once was prominent on the gable end of a house in War Lane, Harborne, near the War Lane allotments but, sadly, since this photo was taken in 2011, the ghost sign has been painted over and is now no longer visible. There are many examples of these signs in Britain and the History of Advertising Trust and other websites on the subject hold an archive of examples from around the UK. Time taken 11.13 pm BST (British Summer Time).
