Sydney Rd, Brunswick
I wouldn’t call this one a ghost sign so much, as the business still operates by the looks of things, but the type is so striking I had to put it in. Check that M! I’m going to try and find out what typeface this might be.
I hope you’ll excuse the colouring here. I’m trying not to get all hipstermatic on these, just playing around with the contrast and colour (I promise, no filters,) … These overcast days aren’t helping my cause.
There’s an absolute cracker right next dorr to this building with a great big faded Nestle ghost sign. I’m going back for that one when the weather clears a little.
That face looks like some sort of spin-off of Avant Garde Gothic. http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/itc/avant-garde-gothic/
Nice catch man!
I’m so going to check out the nestle sign soon too! Thank you! This building always caught my eye!
Hope it’s still there! Haven’t been past in a while. I think a lot of the signs on this old blog are gone now.
