I came across this in a Oxfam shop on Blackheath, London, earlier in the year. As always, I love these old vernacular images, but the Fonthill sign is an added plus for a typography geek like myself.

I’ve been unable to identify the location with any certainty, but somewhere on Fonthill Rd, Finsbury, London is a possibility. Any information gratefully excepted.
