Urban Wandering: an evening stroll around London W10 and W11

Once again I seem to have managed to get out of sync with my blog postings. These pictures were taken last week during a brief,evening stroll around London W10 and W11. Again, as with many ghost signs, I must have walked past these countless times before I became obsessed with the things.

The fist picture is slightly odd in that the lettering on the right hand side appears to be of different sizes, or so I assumed at first, but then I realised that what I thought was an "E" is in fact and "E" followed by an "L", but the middle bar of the "E" is hard to see. Similarly with what looks like a "T" is in fact "T" followed by "I".

This next one is a bit of a mystery. I'm really struggling to decipher any of the words. Does anyone have any ideas?

This next ghost sign is my favourite of this particular urban wander in that it was in a tunnel leading from the main road into a smaller mews. Unfortunately because it was beneath a roof, in a restricted space, it was pretty hard to photograph. I had two attempts at it, one from either side, but neither really helps with the full wording. Open to suggestions.
