Inch & Co Chemists Inspires Poetry
Coming back from my visit to South London I also spotted this ghostsign advertising Inch & Co Cash Chemists on Kennington Park Road. As I was trying to recall the location I searched for the company name and found a couple of references to it on the Formerly blog. The sign has provided a springboard for the creation of a poem which is recited by Tamar Yoseloff below. This (for me) is a new form of artistic expression stimulated by ghostsigns.
Here are some additional references to the sign and poem, and my close-up photo of the ghostsign:
- Note 1: Inch & Co Cash Chemists
- Photo 4: Inch & Co Cash Chemists
- Sonnet 4: Inch & Co Cash Chemists
- Inch & Co Cash Chemists and the X-Zalia Night Cure
This poem and the accompanying photo sit alongside other ghostsigns and derelict signage in the Formerly book.
