Ghost sign on High Street – 24 May 2017: 100 Days Project: Day 3

High Street is being repaired, deconstructed, etcetera. At the far end, there’s a new restaurant going in (called TMR I think). Closer to St Asaph Street, it is more fenced off and in progress. I walk past reasonably often, it’s one of the ways I can get to work.

One of the interesting things exposed and unmasked by this kind of work are ghost signs. They are a little look into the past, history pressing into the now. Today’s the first time I’ve seen that “fruiterer” sign. I’m glad to have spotted it, and it probably won’t be here for long as all those little street overhangs have gone from the other buildings.
