Faded ghost sign
Faded ghost sign
This faded ghost sign is on the gable end of what is now Lloyd's Pharmacy on Melbourne Street SJ9698 : Melbourne Street that overlooks the River Tame.

The shop was established in 1847. By the 1930s it had become Burgon's High Class Grocers. It was a chain of grocers and most of the ghost sign refers to various tea blends.
