Ah.

I was a member of that group, and forgot to sign the disclaimer that they sent me for inclusion in the archive. Oops.

This is the home of the ghostsigns project, a collaborative national effort to photograph, research and archive the remaining examples of hand painted wall advertising in the UK and Ireland. Here is a little bit of background and, if you find it interesting, keep in touch. Photographers and researchers wishing to get involved.
