News round-up (2)

Here's a great project for those of us who love fading wall adverts: Sam Roberts of the Ghost Signs blog is working to establish an online archive of them. He's been talking to the History of Advertising Trust, has begun collecting material, and wants you to get involved.

You can:
  • submit your photos to the flickr group (contact Sam for an invitation);
  • build up background information about your photos;
  • suggest ways of funding the project.
For more information/to contact Sam, click here.

Nice one Caroline, thanks for giving the project a 'blog-plug' and thanks for putting forward some of your great pictures to the group. The whole thing has kicked off really well with nearly 50 members signed up yesterday alone.

Get involved guys and give me a shout if you have any questions or suggestions.
