Half a Ghost
Wandering down Shaw Heath recently I came across this ghost sign on the gable end of a house.
The house is called Studley Villa and a name stone is embedded in the front wall.
According to a reference on rootsweb Robert Howell Jones died sometime after 1943, and at his death he was living at Studley Villa, 124 Shaw Heath, Stockport. He was a painter and decorator by trade.
This is the only information I could find about the house and the sign must date back to at least the 1940s.
A contribution to signs, signs.
