After our recent visit to Morecambe I was reading something or other and the trail lead me to reading about Ghost Signs, those old faded adverts you see from time to time on the side of buildings, or the old shop signs that appear when a shop changes hands. So we (well, I, but Dan drove me around) decided to have a look around the local area to see what we could see. I have to say I'm very disappointed with our town as I've only seen one so far (pictured above).
It's one of those things, when you start spotting them they become obvious. Here are a couple we spotted on a drive up the prom in Blackpool

This sign for Lucky Star amusements doesn't exist anymore. I took this last month, we drove past yesterday and the remaining sign has been chipped away as the building is to become a pub.
A couple of shop signs in the Waterloo area.
