Ghost Sign .....

..... advertising Bile Beans!

Well, I've spotted one, on the A6 at Walkden. It's appeared on an end terraced house gable after a 'paste-on' hoarding has been shifted.

I'm going to take it's picture on my way past next week. I hope they don't cover it up first !

Coming back from Stoke earlier, there was a trailer parked in a farmers field. No advertising, just a lot of Islamic tripe.

No. There's no such thing. It's Arabic.

There's a black container parked in a farmers field, off the north-bound M6, with Arabic writing on it in white.

There's also two containers, one off the M40,the other off the M6 near Birmingham, advertising "PHANTOM CARS"!

I’m just wondering if there are any ghost signs in Wigan (Borough)?

The old Galvin's Temperance Bar sign that was uncovered on the Stone Masons shop on Darlington Street East a few years ago.

It was an islam message, nothing to do with advertising, more to do wi9th entrapping more followers to the cult

There is one on the gable end of a cottage just higher up than the BEN JOHNSON pub. Appears that this was the original BEN JOHNSON pub. You can easily make it out as you drive towards town just before the lights at Sainsbury's
