Mystifying Melbourne: A Ghost Sign special featuring Sean and Maya of "melbourne_ghostsigns" Instagram.

Faded signs of a world gone by, remnants of previous times peaking out from the side of a building giving us a brief glimpse of what was.

Sean Reynolds and his partner Maya who are behind running the fabulous @melbourne_ghostsigns Instagram account join Aisha in studio to speak all about ghost signs. A ghost sign is generally an old sign which gives us a peephole into the past. It might be advertising an old product, store or trade. Melbourne has a plethora of ghost signs- as soon as you start noticing them, you wont be able to stop! Aisha, Sean and Maya chat about how they came to start the page, the importance of bringing the history of the signs back to the present and giving those lost stories acknowledgement.
