Massive painted sign for printing firm Higgs & Co in Henley. The business is still there and my guess is that this was repainted from an original fairly recently. If you look closely in the bottom right corner the sign writer's signature is still visible.

The saddest ghost sign ever! Hastings Corporate Office and Distribution Center has finally gone away. I worked in this building as a music buyer for eight years, and five years in the stores. It was retail for music, video, and books. #hastingsrip #amarillotx #ghostsign

Brilliant old insurance company ghost sign. The hand of cards is great. Spotted in Valby, Copenhagen.
