Ghost Signs of London: The Walking Tour (Saturday 17th May)
To celebrate the launch of my book on Fading Ads of London I’m running a special walking tour event on Saturday 17th May. For the price of a pack of Black Cat Cigarettes you can come along!
According to the remaining ghost signs of London, you could once get 10 Black Cat Cigarettes for 6d. Yahoo Answers reliably (?) tells me that, taking into account the rise in earnings, this equates to £2.50 in terms of modern-day spending power. Consequently that’s the special price for this introductory tour.
The tour will start at Camden Town Tube Station at Midday and will last approximately two hours. When you get to the tube station look out for a blonde lady with a red clipboard (ruling out any ridiculous coincidence that will be me). It is a walking tour so please wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for my endless enthusiasm and random facts about hand-painted signs from a quaint but fascinating era.
Places are very limited to keep the group size manageable so please book soon to avoid disappointment.
Once bought tickets are non-refundable but the price can be transferred against the cost of a future walking tour as required.
