A Little Bit of Nostalgia



You might have thought that a shop just by Victoria station could not have avoided several makeovers through the years. But the "Belgravia Cigaretta Coy" sign looks to be from the twenties, and the cigarette ads in the top window look to date from the sixties and seventies. How much longer, I wonder?

I love old hand done signs, those are a thing of the past...

Perhaps a preservation order can be placed on the shopfront. It's certainly worth keeping.

interesting post...it was just mentioned in my marketing class that the cigarette industry will very soon be out totally.

I love seeing the old ads. Hopefully this shop will keep them up for years to come.

I like these old ads, too, but the anti-tobacco laws are probably to put an end to them. You know, since January 2006 tobacconist's can show no tobacco ads here in Spain. A little weird, isn't it? They sell tobacco, but that's a big secret, or what?
