St-Raphaël, Lille

The side walls and gables of the tall residential blocks of Lille provided many opportunities for large adverts. This particular wall was painted on two occasions at least and even if the ghost signs have badly faded, it is still possible to recognize one particular brand of aperitif: Saint-Raphaël.

For some information on cinchona-based Saint-Raphaël, please see the post about the ghost sign in Rigny-Ussé.

Another product was advertised there but I managed to identify the word 'Royale' only.
