Event description

Description

The fading remains of advertising painted on walls remain a ghostly presence in London and around the world. They whisper the names and slogans of businesses past with fading and cracking paint that has outlived the firms that paid for them. Sam Roberts has been documenting these fading apparitions for 11 years and in this richly illustrated talk he will introduce the stories that lie behind these historic, and often antique, signs.

This will include material from Bankside in London, home to one of the popular Ghostsigns Walking Tours, and examples from much further afield.
