Synopsis
Take a photographic journey into Liverpool's often overlooked local, craft and advertising history. This intriguing book profiles hand-painted advertising from across the city and investigates the companies that commissioned the signs that now appear faded on the brickwork of buildings. It is a snapshot of a time that is almost forgotten but which lives on through the sometimes haunting presence of ghost signs on Liverpool's city streets. Over 150 signs, gloriously illustrated here in full colour, are explored through chapters focused on the types of products advertised: Food & Drink; Alcohol & Tobacco; Shoes & Clothing; etc. Liverpool Ghost Signs is a must for all true local historians.
