Interesting fascia sign in south London. Informative, decorative and timesless. Compare that with next door (RHS), internally illuminated, brash and cluttered signage with no respect for the building or terrace. The projecting sign does little to help this, interrupting the consistency between each shopfront.

Whilst the solid shutter of the central shop is not ideal, it’s housing is well hidden unlike it’s ugly neighbour. An internal shutter, broken grille or security glass would vastly improve this shopfront. That is, assuming what lies under is intact!
