Ghost signs (14): Dowell's Coals


Walking home tonight, I came across this rather nice sign which has been uncovered after some time behind hoardings. It's on Norway Street, Deptford, near the riverfront: a reminder of the days when the docks were active and coal was vital for local industry.

I love this. And the incidental O'Shea sign with its determined steel-toecapped worker going about his business.
