Fading Ads of London

Fading Ads of London is Helen’s third non-fiction book published by The History Press in 2014.

The book is a photographic journey into London’s often overlooked advertising history, profiling hand-painted advertising from across the city. It investigates the companies that commissioned the signs that now appear faded – like ghosts – on the brickwork of buildings. It is a snapshot of a time that is almost forgotten but which lives on through the sometimes haunting presence of ghost signs on the city’s streets.

Richly illustrated with 150 full-colour signs, this collection reveals the many varied industries and businesses of London’s past.
