Forgotten French Ghost Signs

Faded french sign
There’s a Tumblr and Instagram account called Pixdar photographies, which is dedicated to forgotten french signs, faded shop fronts and old-fashioned typography. It’s rather nice to see this stuff still around. In the UK it tends to be more northern towns where you see a few of the ghost signs, where hasty development hasn’t erased them entirely.
