Smiths Teas

Old advert on a shop wall in Oakham where I live I believe it dates from the victorian era. Posted for the Typography Theme challenge.
I like this and looking at it as I sip Assam tea for an afternoon break, somehow it seems perfect.

@taffy Thanks Taffy. I've been meaning to shoot this for a while but as the windows each side are somebody's flat I always lost my nerve. I suspect in a few years it will be that worn away that no one will be able to read it..

I heard something recently on the radio about these "Ghost Signs". There is a preservation society for them. Glad you have preserved it for posterity.
