Fading painted sign on wall for Inch & Co Chemists

Kennington Park Road

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, although it did remind me of the 2011 project, Talking Walls.

Here are some additional references to the sign and poem, and my close-up photo of the ghostsign:

This poem and the accompanying photo sit alongside other ghostsigns and derelict signage in the Formerly book.
