Digbeth my treasure trove!

Images from a recent stroll through the visual dyslexia hotspot Digbeth. Above an old club sign which was taken down, Custard Factory

Seems like St Martins Garage has worked up some 'rage'.

Close up of the closed St. Martins Garage window. Cars (are) out indeed!

Used to be all the rage!

This sign is only a few years old and already half gone! It says a lot about the 'quality' of shop signs today, when shop signs painted over 100 years ago are often still visible. 
Visual Dyslexia at it's best!

Digbeth is clutter with these folding garage doors and I cannot stop myself 
snapping away at them.

Shakin' that ass...a little too much? 
Inadvertently this picture has also become a selfie, 
look closely in the reflection of the Renault sign.

A beautiful ghost sign at 15-17 New Bartholomew Street.


Meanwhile in London...

Sounds like indigestion to me... seen at the Truman Brewery.

Visual dyslexia in Brick Lane

Suddenly I am not so hungry anymore!

Visual Dyslexia on the way to the Design Museum

Literally taken 

On the way there. New Street Station is being redeveloped currently. 
The Pallasades shopping center seems a little coy about it all.


Visual Dyslexic in Stirchley

A beautiful old ghost sign and an ugly, modern visual dyslexic sign, 
Fordhouse Lane corner Pershore Road in Stirchley. 

This visual dyslexic sign looks like it is right from the times of the American gold rush.

An amalgamation of ghost signs and visual dyslexia, beautiful! Local history at it's best!

I am not sure what this ghost sign used to advertise. It is now a bit difficult to access and sadly partialy covered by a satellite dish. The sign however is certainly much longer lasting then the local show, which seems to have changed ownership several times in the past few years (according to google street view).

This prime example of visual dyslexia reflects the business within perfectly. Do not act surprised if you leave this dental surgery with a 'missing' tooth or two!

Have a close look and you will see a second shop sign below 
the 'Have you anything TO SELL' sign.

A fading ghost sign of Fruiterer and Confectioner, a seemingly dying trade. 

So are the Public Baths of Stirchely which now lie derelict and forgotten.

This is a close up of the visual dyslexic sign below.

This sign seems to have advertised many different business in the past
