Boots Camden High Street

This sign is clearly visible from Camden Town tube station as you look up Camden High Street towards Mornington Crescent. You wouldn’t see it if you were in a car or on a bike because of the one way streets, but on foot it catches your eye immediately.

I spotted it while I was with my girlfriend going to Regent’s Park. She then spotted another sign nearby and then I saw a third all in the space of a couple of seconds. I love the lettering, very distinctive from most other signs I’ve seen. Why they put the metalic sign over the top I can’t understand, unless the premises changed hands.
