Ok, I claim my 5 with this one. :)

Bank Street, Herne Bay. Original signage of a signwriter who did much of the signwriting in and around Herne Bay.

 This is a house on Buckland Terrace, London Rd Dover. It must have at sometime been used as a shipping office. A few years ago these were readable, and were offering cheap emigration to Canada date unknown, delboy

I think the Upnor High St sign is "Stone Bros (Brothers) bakers & Grocers".

On the Royal George pub at Waldershare. Uncovered after the porch was removed. Ernest French was the landlord from 1961 to 1966.

At the top of Chatham Hill on the right as you go up.

Other words, Chas Moake?  the word The can be seen. It looks like as if it has older wrining pained over it.  I wonder what was being advertised there.

I took these photos today.

I thought that I had better put this one from my home village of Minster on here as I remembered to take the camera when I walked down to the village on Saturday morning..
It is on the corner of Egbert Road / Monkton Road.




Another interesting thing that has been mentioned on this forum before, it was in the back garden of this house that a skeleton was discovered when they were digging a swimming pool.
We all had a school trip round there so that we could see it before it was remo
ved. That would have been somewhere between 1967- 69.

I think Maypole was a  general grocer like International & Home & Colonial- not guaranteeing it though
