Fourth contribution from Hex . I love everything about this shop. Especially the font and colour on the sign, and the cornucopia of musical gadgets on display in the window. Will definitely call in here next time I’m in the area.
Third one from Hex (thanks again). This time it’s the Shah Dental Surgery on Acre Lane in Brixton. Ahhh, the good times I had in Brixton as a younger man. Never went to the dentist there to be honest, but stumbled out of The Dogstar more times than I care to remember.
The first of 9 (nine!) contributions from roving correspondent Hex, and it’s a good’un. And the fourth carpet retailer to have featured here. Maybe that says something about the business sense of carpet salespeople. Or maybe it says something about the mark-up on carpets. Who knows. It’s still a glorious 01 in blue and yellow.
Another contribution from Nik – thanks Nik! – and this one’s not an 01. Oh no. This is older. As in “Hello? Operator? Get me Clerkenwell 2190″. Awesome. And, very pleasingly, their modern-day phone number still ends 2190.
Oh, what glorious riches! An honest-to-goodness 01, and a telex number! Now that is proper old school. I had to look up what telex numbers are/were. Many thanks to Nik for sending in the photo. And what the hell is in all those barrels?
Nice snap of a lovely (but surely repainted) sign in Bermondsey, just off the Old Kent Road. Many thanks to Nik for sending it in. The sign is a beauty, but I fear Carters Tool Hire is no longer a going concern.
Long time no update. But here’s beauty from Shepherds Bush. Only got a quick snap as I was in a rush, but that there is a proper, no messing, original 01 dialling code. Still looks pretty smart too. Quality signage.
