Ghost Signs of Glasgow Exhibition

The Ghost Signs of Glasgow Exhibition by Glasgow City Heritage Trust unearths the stories behind old signs and shopfronts of the city!

Ghost Signs of Glasgow Exhibition

About Ghost Signs of Glasgow Exhibition

Ghost signs, the fading remains of old painted signs on buildings, provide an invaluable insight into Glasgow’s architectural, social and cultural history. Many ghost signs hide in plain sight hidden by the urban landscape around them, leaving a tangible part of Glasgow’s heritage vulnerable to being lost forever.

The project will be revealing, researching and documenting ghost signs in Glasgow in order to create an online archive and to expand our collective knowledge about these remnants of Glasgow’s past. We will be organising guided walks, talks and workshops, and making a map of these signs and shopfronts across the city. With the help of volunteers, the project hopes to use social media to engage people with Glasgow’s historic environment and encourage communities to share their memories of the city.
