    I loved the stories the shopkeepers tell about how their families came from the old country and have been running the businesses ever since.

    With so much store signage now having such lacklustre design, it s nice to have a book that gives a retrospect view of the great sign making of yesteryear This books shows a time when shop owners took a real pride in the image they want to convey to it s customers, and with so many of these shop fronts disappearing it s good to have a reminder of how good store fronts can be.
