Tanners Hill Bomb Shelter Sign
This fading image on Tanners Hill, Deptford, is a double ghost sign. The 'S' on a white background points to a Second World War bomb shelter further down the hill.
Over the top of it you can make out more recent graffiti 'Proletariat' - the letter 'Prole' in white paint and the rest of the word bleached out on the brick work as if it at attempt was made to clean it off at some point.
A similar sign remained on Jerningham Road, SE14, until the wall was demolished recently. There'a also one in Ladywell.
Anybody know where the Tanners Hill bomb shelter was, or even recall what the graffiti said?
