Teas, Willesden

White lead oils & colors and tea don't go well together but ghost signs for both (and more) can be seen on the same building at the corner of High Road and Linacre Road in Willesden. Shops simply came and went, and some left their painted mark. As a result the space above the entrance, visible from far away, is a real palimpsest and is very difficult to decipher.

Try Our

The different typefaces would suggest the first line of this ghost sign does not relate to the drinks mentioned further down.
