Here’s a little selection of posters and painted ads from late 1920s’ Germany and Austria as featured in a booklet from 1931 called Reklame und Heimatbild, which translates, clunkily, as Advertising and Homeland Image. I suspect that this selection shows us three examples of ‘bad’ advertising practice and one ‘good’ but my German isn’t up to confirming that. All fascinating nevertheless, including that bit of Bauhaus lettering on the Innsbruck tennis tournament poster.
There are many more of Pooja Saxena’s Indian signage photos at India Street Lettering here.
Some niches disappear, as these ghostsigns for an importer of rebuilt typewriters, in Oswald Street, Glasgow, attest.
There don’t seem to be many ghostsigns in Bergen, but I spotted these.
Two nice Paddington station car park signs from Henry S.
