These 4 (the first from My Kitten's excellent Kilmarnock Rd series and the second from an earlier post from JamesMc) really show how cheap and nasty things look today with garish posters stuck everywhere. There was a classiness in the old days that's been lost.
It's been lost in Glasgow..... but take a look at much of edinburgh where there is gorgeous handpainted shop fronts and signage everywhere....and it looks great.
Glasgow take note!
It's one of my pet hates too... the majority of signage is visually offensive and there is no need! The shop owner probably knows no other way...and posibly even imagine it looks great. It doesnt. Guidance is needed.
Bring back painted fronts and pretty the place up!!!
