Kings Cross Ghostsigns – Boots, Breakfast, Bates and Weights

October 1, 2023 @ 11:00 - 13:00

The streets in Islington’s most western area, adjacent to Kings Cross station, used to be slathered with signage. On this tour we look at some of the examples that are still visible, whether painted onto walls or as carved panels. Hear about the businesses, brands and people behind the signs – innovative inventions, bogus potions and bygone brands, as well as big names and products that are still going strong today.
