Ghost Signs of Whitby

Arthur Sawdon

Ghost signs are old hand painted signs for businesses that are long gone. Arthur Sawdon was a seller of beds and carpets while Thomas Bryan was a wholesale jet merchant. Are there any ghost signs in your area?

I have spotted a couple of ghost signs around my area, but I can't remember what they say without going back to look. I remember that one was some sort of reference to a now dismantled railway.

There are a couple up and down Borough High Street and around the Bankside area. I love them!

I really am going to have to go back to Whitby one day soon. *sigh*
