Ghost signs

Ghost signs are often posted on social media, usually from sites in cities. This is one from Gaol Road in Stafford, opposite the prison.

This is a very old part of the town and close to the site where hangings took place at the town prison. The Rugeley Poisoner, William Palmer, met his end here.

The shop is now sound and lighting equipment but was once a tobacconist. I wonder how many last smokes were bought here, before lengthy sentences or anxious visits.
