Ghost sign on Deanery Way/Union Road

Last week when I showed you the sign of the White Lion part of a ghost sign was spotted in the background.

I've been back to take another look at it. The sign is very faded and I'm not able to decipher it. Union Road became Deanery Way when the Merseyway Shopping Centre was built. The buildings to right of here, including the Grosvernor Inn were demolished but I've not been able to find any old photos showing this building on the corner of Great Underbank. It is now occupied mainly by the Yorkshire Building Society.

A contribution to signs, signs.


  1. It is a shame that there isn’t some place you could call to find out what was written on the building. It really does eat at one’s curiosity.

  2. It would have been a pretty prominent sign. Perhaps there is still someone around who likes to keep track of local history who might remember/know?

  3. «Louis» likes finds like this!
    In a similar vein, he found this on an old barn.
