A few more ghost signs in the Melbourne 'burbs

Encountered whilst on bicycle:

Glenroy...rare example in a suburb where pickings are slim

Heidelberg Road, Westgarth: old dairy with a 'ghost window' bearing its trace of its former Kosherness (these days, it's nowhere near the Jewish part of town...looked at this place to buy a decade ago and was struck by the Magen David then)

Former milk bar, Maidstone

Former milk bar, West Footscray
Not strictly a ghost anything because this small deco tennis string factory is still working - but too cool to not include (it's in the backblocks of scrappy rundown Braybrook...facing an equally 'incongruously beautiful' river valley)
