Liverpool Ghost Signs – Caroline Bunford, Phil Bunford
Take a photographic journey into Liverpool’s often overlooked local, craft, and advertising history. This intriguing book profiles handpainted 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. More than 100 signs, gloriously illustrated here in full color, are explored through chapters focused on the types of products advertised, such as food and drink; alcohol and tobacco; shoes and clothing; etc. Liverpool Ghost Signs is a must for all true local historians.
