A tour of Ghost Signs in Glasgow’s West End featuring pubs, grocers and an old ice cream parlour!
Ghost Signs of Glasgow was started in 2018 by Glasgow City Heritage Trust. Ghost signs, the fading remains of old painted signs on buildings, provide an invaluable insight into Glasgow’s architectural, social and cultural history. However, many of them hide in plain sight, obscured by the urban landscape around them and leaving them vulnerable to being lost forever. This project unearths the stories behind these old signs and shopfronts across the city and captures them for posterity.
