SIGN OF THE PAST

sign

One of the things that I love about London is the every day layering of past and present.  You can be walking past the most modern building imaginable and yet be walking along the same street that a Roman centurion would have done.  Whilst wandering around Westminster, after visiting the Palace of Westminster,  I happened to look up and see this sign.  The baths are long gone but the sign remains.

    I love walking through Bath and seeing the faded signs painted on walls – ghostsigns. Businesses long gone, but not forgotten it seems. #MySundayPhoto

    It’s amazing how times change, now we are funny about no en-suite never mind public baths! Great sign to capture.

    I often think things like that when walking down an historic street too. I like the feeling. I wonder how many people attempt to find the baths though? #MySundayPhoto

    Isn’t London great for still a sense of history. I look to sell out signs of the past #mysundayphoto

    That is interesting, I wonder if that sign has been cleaned up, it looks in pretty good shape. You got some great color and shadow on the building.

    Always adds to a place I think!
