one-off at the wrist



“Under the cobblestones, the beach”, so the Situationist International use to say. If you keep your eyes peeled you can find even more interesting things.

I spotted this along Whitechapel Road about a month ago where a fast food outlet was changing its signage. Bressloff and Sons were apparently boot makers in the 1920s.

This is the beauty of painted exteriors; unlike modern signage they remain when simply covered over. These are the kinds of treasure that should be ‘listed’ by local government? They provide a connection to the past that is all too often being lost in our great London rebuild onwards and upwards never-ending push to house the throngs of ‘needy’ residents.
