I particularly like ‘ghost’ letters; faded, almost lost examples of architectural lettering. Usually they are advertisement that are found painted on building facades. These ones are from St. George’s Quay, Lancaster, and are found on the Georgian warehouses that line the quayside. Some are commercial and two are old street names. The Princess Street example is unusual in that it uses a type form known as a Fat Face that were intended for eye-catching print advertisements and headlines. I’ve never seen it used on street name signage before – anywhere.
