Let that be a warning to you


Fantastic old sign in Ambrosden Avenue, Westminster, London (on a building which I believe may be the Archibishop’s House). I love how long it is – and how specific. Chalking OR writing – so, ok to paint a picture then? And the boast about the telephone is wonderfully superior and final, almost as if it’s invoking batman or a bit of black magic.

  1. What a hoot- wonder what era it's from? 1930s?

  2. I'm not sure - it could be even earlier as apparently there was a telephone company in Westminster in 1879 (and only top notch folk would have phones so the church may have been an early adopter!)
