A ghost of the Market Harborough to Rugby line

This advertisement was painted to snare travellers on the Market Harborough to Rugby railway line. That line closed on 6 June 1966, but the advert is still there on the rear of premises behind Nithsdale Avenue.

And if you go to my post on Britain from Above and follow the lnk to the aerial photograph of Harborough from 1926 you can see this building. It is the one towards the bottom right of the photo with its long side running parallel with the railway.
