Ghost signs and the Melbourne Circle
May 15 @ 2:15 pm - 4:00 pm
With intensive development of urban sites, ghost signs suddenly appear when previous development, which had blocked the view of the signs, is demolished.
Nick Gadd has captured many of these nostalgic and historic signs on his website. Almost like the signs and symbols of the past, Nick captures and brings these signs to life. Many have since disappeared again behind new constructions, perhaps waiting for another century to pass until they too appear again.
