7 Ghost Signs you’ve probably never noticed in Luton

If you’ve ever been to London and spotted those faded and weather-beaten, hand painted signs on the side on buildings – the last place you’d think you’d see them, would be in Luton.

I stumbled across one in High Town by total accident and it got me hungry for more. Were there any more historic advertisements from generations past, that I’d walked past none the wiser?

A little research later…

There absolutely was!
