Wordless Wednesday: Layers of History




  1. Another hit!

  2. wonderful photo, sue

  3. Where did you find this one? I like the reflections of windows in the shop windows. Very cool, Sue.

  4. Another lovely piece of history from Old London, Sue. These would make a very good series.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. An interesting area, Spitalfields. This looks like you could be in a Dickensian novel.

  6. Keeping their options open 🙂

  7. Such a fascinating shop front, Sue. From posh hats to hot pies. 🙂

      Indeed, Sylvia! Amazing what you can find on the Internet…. It appears that a Hungarian Jew called Amelia Gold had the millinery business in the 1880s…the sign has been retained despite that business being long gone!

  8. Delightful Sue! Sad to hear it’s a disappearing phenomenon – ‘progress’ so rarely brings improvement these days I fear! 🙂

  9. Spitalfields looks like your natural photographic home. That lovely palette for a start: the geometry of the image; and then layers and overlayers. The history is clear – you don’t even have to depend on ghost signs.

    • Sue

      Oh, true, over the last couple of years I have got a good few images from there, and usually feel inspired! But alas swathes of this area will be gone soon…..

  10. What an interesting little shop. Did you go inside?

  11. Nice to see there are still shop fronts like this.

  12. Indeed! What a wonderful old shop! 🙂

Over to you...
