Good Evening All. Many thanks for Crosstrainer for stepping into the breach – it is nice to be back. These two were in an old glassine envelope, which gradually disintegrated as I was examining it. Written in copying ink pencil I could just about make out - London, 2 views of dear old…… The next letter was either an F or an E, it was far too gone to be able to say! A standard postcard back, unposted and yielding no further clues. click hereclick here
Welcome back, I take it the Mac thingy is now up and running and causing nomore headaches. Just had a brief glance at the two images and that must be "Freeman, Hardy and Wil(l)is" on the right hand side of the image 2. Not that conversant with London but no doubt the other stalwarts will be along shortly. In the meantime I'll keep studying.
Freeman Hardy Willis was shoe shops bases in Leicester went on to be Trueform, Olympus Sport, Curtess, Dolcis, Manfield, Saxone and Lilley & Skinner. The name was also changed to simply 'Freeman Hardy Willis' in order to have bolder lettering on shopfronts.
Building on right on image 3 has a "Claymore Whisky" sign on the top but I can't make out the sign above the window (using photoshop). It looks like a public house or some such and I thoght the last word was 'Bar' but there seems to be four letters in it. The building on the other side must say "Bitter" but whose? Also still trying to find which bit of London FHW had shops.
