A ghost sign in Melton Mowbray

This metal sign is appealing but impossible to read.

Its location across the entrance to a yard, and a ghost sign on the neighboring building, give a big clue to what it once said.

The rusted sign would be immediately readable by a forensic scientist on any crime drama...

In the real world, it is probably readable by using an optical or digital filter which takes out the colour of rust. Iron oxide was a common pigment in paint and dyes for years, but other colours should show through.
