Errr, where’s Fairford?

Billboard advertising the Fairford Air TattooSpotted from the coach on the way into London recently. RAF Fairford is around 15 miles from Swindon and in a completely different county.

Anyone concerned about finding the show will find this website useful 😉



Errr, Where Am I?

Where Am I

I took this photo because I’m unsure how many people are going to take their phone and either telephone the company concerned, or look up the QR code whilst they’re on the loo. On the other hand,  I DID fish out my camera to take this shot…

It wasn’t until later I spotted the code is one of those pictorial ones AND the misplaced apostrophe. This works on so many levels for Sign of the Times!

Bile Beans

A ‘Sign of the Times’ from yesteryear left on the side of a building in York. What I’d like to know is this: if Bile Beans are so good for you, why aren’t they available today?

Update: I’ve since found out this is an example of a Ghost Sign: a fascinating rabbit hole to fall into 😉

More about Bile Beans here – well worth a look!

Olympic Dreams: Bath Spa Station

The athlete on the poster is our world champion diver, Tom Daley. I didn’t really set out to contrast the glamour of the Olympics with where the advertisements are actually displayed, but I’m rather pleased I’ve found these over the past couple of weeks and will be looking out for more.

This one’s even more ironic as Bath University is where many of our top athletes train, including Amy Williams: our sole Olympic gold medallist from the last winter games. It’ll also be the home camp for the entire GB paralympic team for 2012.
