Colourful overlap

Posted on

I spotted this sign, or I should really say signs just last week and on the side of a house I have passed so many times. Who knows why I haven’t seen it before!
It is on Lutterworth Road Leicester close to the junction with Middleton Street.
There are quite a few advertisements painted here and more painted on top only to be revealed as they are as the paint decays.
I can see Picture Post, Capstan cigarettes, Wills’s Star cigarettes and maybe one more on the top left but I haven’t figured that out yet.
It’s one of the most colourful ghost signs I’ve seen blue, red and yellow overlapping, so large too.DSCN2466

Ghost Sign Revealed

Ghost Sign Revealed

The billboard covering this ghost sign was blown off the wall during the winter storms in Feb 2014. The storms uncovered this painted sign unseen perhaps for decades on the corner of Beatrice Road & Fosse Rd North Leicester.
