Ive been walking past this sign for a number of years now, always with the intention of photographing it. More recently I've been getting slightly worried it will have been replaced with something new, not nearly as nice, or so interesting. However last month I bit the bullet, picked up the camera and got the shot!
The sign,made with vinyl lettering, on wooden board, has peeled over time. As legibility decreases, the intrigue grows.

Top marks to our son, who was helping out at the School fair, and found this box of Caran D'ache pencils, from the 1950s. What care has been taken with the packaging, from the paper label to the string that binds them together.
Included in the box (below) was the original customer complaint slip. The translation into english is rather quaint
In case of complaint please return this slip and join a sample.
