Another pic from Nik, again from way back in 2012. I may be lazy, but never let it be said that I ever delete any emails.

Similar to the last post, it’s gladdening to see that this sign is still on view via Streetview.

Love the dynamic italic header font, and the bold, modern red text. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this sign, so why replace it?

A new post! Huzzah!

Featuring a photo kindly sent to me by Nik, way back in, um, May 2012. Look, I’ve been busy, OK?

And pleasingly, three years on, it looks like this classic 01 is still in place. Or, at least, it was the last time the Streetview car went past.

Neglect

Oh, my poor, neglected blog.

I blame my son. I have no time to do anything since becoming a father.

I have a large backlog of images, which, god-wiling, I will start to add soon. Yes.

6th photo from Hex. How can I ever thank him enough. Perhaps if I had gone to the Dot-approved Aden School of Motoring, I would have passed my test in one attempt, not the four  it actually took me.

5th contribution from Hex. I suspect Tooting Video Centre may have gone the same way as the VHS cassette. But the 01 on the sign hangs on in there. And that’s the important thing.

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.

Shah Dental Practice, Brixton

Shah Dental Practice, Brixton

 

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.
