John Hunter, one of Australia’s prolific prolific collectors of ghostsigns, sent me these images of a recent reveal in Caulfield, Victoria. They were captured by Tony Mead, local signwriter, and are for a brand that I’ve never seen advertised in this form before. Tony and Stefan have added some research to the discovery which dates the sign to c.1939-40. The remaining portion of the sign has survived incredibly well, protected by the adjacent building which has now been demolished. I wonder how long this wonderful reveal will remain visible…
