Jackson, Kingston

Clarence Street in Kingston upon Thames has two ghost signs: the enigmatic Local Arms China and, a few metres away and partly hidden, one for a shoemaker by the name of Jackson.

... L. Jackson

However, for now, the sign for Jackson is partially hidden by a scaffolding erected in front of the building next door. Whatever happens to that building, let's hope it won't lead to the sudden disappearance of yet another ghost sign.

The sign visible on the photo replaced an earlier one but not enough of it can be deciphered to tell whether it was also promoting Jackson's shoemaking workshop or a different business.
