|Painted Signs and Mosaics|
|If you look up or down, you will soon discover plenty of painted signs and

or very simple, relatively well-preserved or have almost completely faded by now, they provide a
valuable insight into our social history and past commercial practices.
Most interesting blog by Sebastien Ardouin: painted adverts from Britain, France, Germany and elsewhere.
