Another Urban Wander in and around Shoreditch, London (part 2)

Having been inundated with work over the past couple of weeks, and now having contracted man-flu, this second installment is later than planned. Purely by chronological serendipity this post seems to feature mainly street art, ghost signs and other signs.

When I first saw this sign I was a bit unsure whether it was old, new or renovated. However a quick bit of internet research revealed that it was in fact the sign for C.H.N. Katz, the string and paper bag wholesalers.

This was easily my favourite piece of street art that I saw during this wander. Reminds me a bit of a early 1980's anarco-punk record sleeve.

Not sure if this saree centre is still a going concern. I am assuming not as there was not sign of use and the phone number on the sign is an old London format.

Another fantastic, old sign on a re purposed building.

A distressed look, but I suspect deliberately so?
