History of Advertising Trust Ghostsigns Archive


The History of Advertising Trust Ghostsigns Archive is a free, searchable, online collection of hundreds of ghostsigns from across the UK and Ireland.

Contributions

Photographers who have pictures of UK and Ireland signs can contribute them to the archive in the form of a gift. Details of how to do this can be found on their website. If you have any questions about the process for these submissions please email enquiries@hatads.org.uk. Ghostsigns from these and other locations can also be shared elsewhere, with details at the end of this page.

Launch & Press

The archive was launched at an event on the evening of Thursday, 18th March 2010. Pictures of the event can be found on this page from the blog and this Flickr set.
