Here’s another Hoylake ghost sign that I’ve walked past so many times without noticing!
When I published the photo of the other Hoylake ghost sign a few weeks ago I presumed that it was the only one. But Sue Jackson left a comment saying that there was another one almost over the road …and she’s right of course!
In the little alley way between the Ship Inn and the Carly’s Barbers at Jessies Yard (by the way, this is one of my favourite Market Street photos) there’s a ghost sign on the brick wall. The not-so-easy-to-spot sign was for another Bird business; this one selling furniture, blinds and lino, etc.
I chose a 30 minute slot last Saturday lunchtime to walk along and take a photo. It absolutely poured down from the moment we (the dog has to come too) left the house; we got soaked; the camera didn’t have a memory card so was only able to take 3 or 4 images and I confirmed that my walking boots definitely leak. You’ll be able to see the ghost sign more clearly by walking up and taking a look rather than screwing your eyes looking at my photo.
There aren’t any other ghost signs are there?
