The Typeset - Ghost Signs, Melbourne

As part of ongoing documentary project ‘The Typeset’, Leanne Franks and I have collaborated to share our passion for old signs that have been preserved on building walls for long periods of time. The signage may have been preserved for nostalgic appeal or simply forgotten by their owner. We have set out to capture the ghost signs of Melbourne in all their unique beauty. Here is one from Burke Street in Melbourne’s CBD.
