Ghost signs (46): Apply Within

It made sense to place painted wall adverts alongside railways: just as with roads, there were plenty of passing viewers. This sign in Isleworth is not visible from the line, but does catch the eye of everyone who exits the station. Should they wish to stay for a while, then 'for all available property in this district apply within'.

I've enjoyed browsing through some of your recent posts. Love the concept of Ghost Signs - it's a great way to describe them. I especially like your Boots sign picture. I found your blog via BlogCatalog.

Thank you very much! If you enjoy ghost signs, I'd recommend the ghost signs archive - set up by Sam Roberts, who has a great website. The archive has contributions from all over Britain (including some from me!).
