The archive launches
Thank you to everyone who came along to the launch event last night, photos below. The archive is now available so make a visit and have a browse.
I’m really happy with the way this has all come together and as I said last night it would simply not have been possible without the generous support and contributions from the many people who have become involved along the journey. Thank you.
I hope you enjoy browsing the archive and I’m sure there will be more signs coming out now that we’ve laid this stake in the ground. There have already been some good write ups online (Londonist and The Guardian, to name a couple) and I’m looking forward to seeing the project featured in the Eastern Daily Press and, in mid April, on BBC1 on the One Show.

Support My Work
If you value my work on ghost signs then please support it with a one-off or monthly contribution of £3 or more. This helps to cover my direct costs and keep everything accessible to all. If you want to fund a specific project or piece of research then get in touch to discuss this with me.
