Faded Greenwich (5)
BoneyBoy and Paul have kindly saved me the slog up Westcombe Hill to capture this piece of Faded Greenwich – being the laziest Phantom in the world I wasn’t much looking forward to it, despite its being one of the best examples of old painted advertising I know of round here.
Shame about the satellite dish – surely it could have been placed a few centimetres higher. Makes it hard to work out the first part of the mural. I spent quite some time trying to figure out the lettering; this is the best I can do:
Plumber & Decorator
Alterations & Repairs
Sanitary Goods of Every Description
(Blank) Green 087
Maybe sharper eyes than mine can work out the details…
As usual I know nothing about Mr Holmes and his plumbing and decorating business – any clues will be gratefully received, as will other examples of faded and fading Greenwich.
