Ghost Sign # 10

Not so much a ghost sign, more of a message from the Grim Reaper. I guess the demolition will take the 'Holy Spirit Church Centre' with it, or at least what’s left of it. The estate conjures up the spirit of Alex DeLarge and he’s gang. “There was me, that is Alex, and my three droogs, that is Pete, Georgie, and Dim, and we sat in the Korova Milkbar trying to make up our rassoodocks what to do with the evening.”  ‘A Clockwork Orange’ was filmed on a similar estate, Thamesmead, only a few miles away. This early 70’s concrete monstrosity was also home to a real life terror cell and terrorist training facility, which was uncovered in October 2001.

Demolition seems like a good idea.
