HERITAGE NEWS: Ghost sign in Sydney

Bronwyn Woff

A 'ghost' advertising sign of Peapes menswear store has been uncovered in Wynyard, Sydney as the building next to it was demolished. Peapes was closed in 1970, and the building which covered the advertisement was constructed in the 1960s. The lack of sunlight and harsh weatherconditions have kept the paint safe for more than 50 years. The building on which the advertisement is painted is known as Beneficial House, and is Heritage Listed.  For more images and information:
