This is the second route for the Fashion House.

This is what it looks like now:

But what if:

On the side of the building we have painted a Ghost sign directing people to the Blenheim centre. The shop has a clothing tag on the sign which we envisage would be hand painted.

Here is a closer look at the logo, tag and Ghost sign.

    Interesting pair of ideas, has anything happened to make this a reality? You can learn more about ghostsigns and find further inspiration on these sites:

      Hi Sam, thanks for this. We have been collecting ghost signs for over 10 years (we call them ‘gones’ for some strange reason!), we have loads of images from all over the place which we planned to make into a book. We put this one hold when we saw loads of people were already doing it on Flickr and then found your website (which we are fans of). I should send you some of the pictures we have taken if you want them!

      We have been wanting to bring these beautiful signs back to the high street for years. A few of the make overs on the other what if sites have designs for these and we worked in Harrow on some branding for North Harrow and created a 1950’s version of the logo which we got signwritten on a wall and then distressed. Please keep an eye on our blogs and if you like we will send you images of any work we get done for these signs for your site should you want to feature them.

        Thanks Lee. I’m always interested in new pictures, especially of rare or lost signs, my email is sam@ghostsigns.co.uk

        Perhaps if something comes of the conceptual work you could help me to create a blog post for the main ghostsigns blog. In the meantime I’ve scheduled a mention of your work on the posterous site for around 17th April so I could also add some images to that from your own archive.

        You should also consider becoming a contributor to the HAT archive:

        Hi Sam,

        yes, we’d love to contribute. Our internet is down at the moment (this is a temporary link) so we will sift through 10+ years of photo’s and dig out the peaches to send to you. Hopefully they wont be of sites you already have!

        Have a great Easter,
