British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

I have been busy photographing historic faded adverts for just over a year now. It has been great to record these important symbols of our culture in a creative way. I donate all the work to The History of Advertising Trust who are compiling an archive.

Ghost Signs of London is the link to see the latest work. I am trying to build up some historical information about each of the signs as they will disappear before to long. There was one on Oxford Street which is now demolished and sadly I did not get to photograph. 

Got to be quick.....

Thank you Wendy I appreciate you taking the time to look and to comment. I love the old fashioned language they use.

Lovely pics on the site! I especially liked 'Tailors, Outfitters, Hosiers and Hatters'...

A great project. I have been photographing them, too, when I see them.
