Driving back to London from a wedding this weekend I pulled over in Southborough to take a picture of this sign. It’s obviously been maintained and I like the effect used on the corners. Like the Vaneers ad it features an old style phone number, this one for Tunbridge Wells 529 757.
However, my favourite thing about this sign is that on closer inspection you can make out some text from an ad that used to live here. It was still for the butchers and all that is left is their great slogan, “Pleased to meet you, meat to please you”. Where in the world can you find copy like that these days?!
