A few Hurstbridge signs

It's been a while since I've posted here - life's kinda got in the way of late :) So now I've got this ridiculous backlog of ghost sign pics...will try to clear it over the next little while. Stay tuned.

But first, some signs I snapped the other day in the main drag of Hurstbridge, including a fabbo Nestles sign uncovered by a billboard removal on an old grocery.

Oh, and PS: After over two years of work, WE'VE HANDED IN THE FINAL PROOFS FOR OUR GHOST SIGNS ACADEMIC BOOK!! It should be out soon...the blurb is here: https://www.routledge.com/Advertising-and-Public-Memory-Social-Cultural-and-Historical-Perspectives/Schutt-Roberts-White/p/book/9781138934689

Note that it will be only available in ridiculously expensive hardback for the first 12 months, then out in more reasonable paperback after that.


  1. Fantastic news about the book. Congratulations and Cheers! I will wait for the paperback version.

  2. Congratulations on the book, Stefan. Perhaps there will be a prize copy for some competition that we could all enter?

    1. Thanks Mark and Daniela. A competition is a great idea. Will explore with my co-editors :)

  3. Well done Stefan so glad you are near the finishing line with the book. Also good you can now do more posting. I'm in a similar boat re backlog of posts and restarting work on that today. Rob Gray
