Sunlight and Lifebuoy, Willesden

In an earlier post about a Willesden cash store, I mentioned that much of the space available was used to advertise goods on sale inside. While R. White's soft drinks were confined to the wall by the entrance, the whole façade was promoting Lever Brothers' best selling soaps, Sunlight and Lifebuoy. Some information about the company, its products, and how it was at the forefront of product placement in movies can be found in previous posts about Sunlight ghost signs spotted in Clapham Junction and Upper Clapton.

Largest Sale
In The World

Unfortunately whatever was written to the left of the window has faded too much to be able to read anything.

Apart from those mentioned above, other Sunlight ghost signs on this blog include examples from Ravenscourt Park and Highbury.
