A little bit of ghost sign goodness has been revealed in the far west, where renovations on a former locksmith's shop, at 656 Dumbarton Road, uncovered this long-hidden, gilded glory.

While the signage is currently back under wraps, the shop's new occupants hope to restore and conserve this glimpse into Cadbury's early advertising.

While it's hard to put an exact date to it - as Bournville used the same typeface for so many decades - at a guess, I'm plumping for late Edwardian.

If any old Thornwood residents bought their sweeties here, we'd love to hear.
