Painted signs were once common but have been replaced by printed billboards, and those that survive are fading fast, or being demolished during building work.A flickr group seems like a good idea, maybe the Melbourne map of old signs 'Our Fading Past' should also have a flickr group. Thoughts?(Possibly there may be something like this already that I have missed!)
Project manager Sam Roberts has documented over 650 painted 'ghostsigns' around the country, with the help of interested photographers through the Ghostsigns Flickr group.
Some of the signs I have photographed...
