This sign is probably from World War II, but I thought it would be appropriate to post it anyway because of it being the 90th anniversary of Britain going to World War I this week.

i cant see why they would still have the signs up? a sly way of showing people as to what they should appreciate?

being a great london fan and a curious person by nature, i always start wondering what is going on behind those windows i see in london shots, which stories are developing, who is living there, with a bit of melancholy..

Well this certainly has a lot of atmosphere. I like to imagine stories to go with it.

I really like the texture of the wall and the composition. A bit annoyed about that over-exposed window frame... but I'll live with it... =P

Nice catch, the sign and the window are both good pieces of art.

I would hazzard a guess that the sign has been left there on purpose as a
gentle reminder of the bombing and the destruction. You and I have only seen it in
pictures, but your older relatives and my wife's witnessed the devastation in person.

I love how you see these signs on the sides of buildings, its amazing how well they've kept, considering they looked old even during WW1 and WW2. Love the old mullion window and the tones of the b/w. A classic street architecture photo :love:

Though I have been impressed by age of the sign, the reflections and perspectives inside the multi-pieces window are also great. Something like coming or going somewhere else..

Its a wonder how that sign stayed there all these years, no painting not even any posters covered it up. Nice catch. :)

Hmm, nice shot. It's interesting, and the white frame of the window is a really nice contrast against the dark sign...
