Now you see me, now you don’t: London’s elusive shop signs
Nice article here
about the brief reveal, and more extended cover up, of some of London’s beautiful hand painted shop signs. In some ways they are being preserved, but they could be equally be showcased. They represent the skills of signwiters such as the contemporary Peter Hardwicke. Jane also covered a closely related topic in her account of the paint stripping on a shop sign in Dean Street.
