Hostel For Working Men

Prominent ghost sign advertising a Salvation Army Hostel. It seems to have originally consisted of white lettering on a red background, and was doubtlessly eye-catching when new. Interestingly, the paintwork appears to have worn far more quickly on the white brickwork while the chimney has retained more of the original colouring than the walls either side.

 

It reads:

 

THE

SALVATION

ARMY.

HOSTEL FOR

WORKING MEN

CHEAP BED(?)

AND FOOD

 

Seen in Old Street, London EC1.
