Brymay, West Norwood

Some weeks ago the removal of a hoarding revealed the missing part of the Nestlé ghost sign in Clapham. In West Norwood, it is a Brymay ghost sign that has now fully reemerged.

March 2010

The blue and yellow colours are characteristics of Brymay's signs but the wording is slightly different from that of the better-known ghost sign from New Cross.

The Brymay sign was painted over an earlier one for the Westminster Gazette. For some information about this Liberal newspaper, please see the earlier post about the Criterion, Westminster Gazette, and Gillette ghost sign in Stoke Newington.
