Washeteria, Swanage

The sign looks relatively recent but the launderette it promotes shut down a few years ago. Indeed Washeteria Ltd was dissolved in October 2000, shortly before the company celebrated its third anniversary. Thus, this ghost sign may well have been painted in October 1997 or shortly afterwards. Unless of course there was already a launderette before the incorporation of the company, in which case this ghost sign may be a few years older (but given its design by not more than a decade I's say).
