Shop signs

Some assorted shop signage spotted recently, the top two are in Margate. There's something quite poignant about the Thanet Times building (the best for Thanet sport).

The bottom two were revealed when a shop near me was recently renovated. I snapped it just in time, as the old sign was painted over the next week. The Gill-esque lettering was hand-painted; a magnificent example of the almost lost art of sign painting.

This is really great Blog. These days retail signage are in vogue. Large fast food joints and retailers are using this medium to inform customers about the products they offer.
