Preston Ghost Signs

Ghost signs: The Preston adverts that stood the test of time

Many ghost signs from the 1890s to 1960s are still visible around Preston.

The painters of the signs were called "wall dogs". As signage advertising formats changed, less durable signs appeared in the later 20th century, and ghost signs from that era are less common. But there are still plenty to see if you look hard enough
