This recently relocated independent bookshop is a joy for anyone who likes books with a difference. It stocks a range of unusually and generally beautiful items as well as an excellent children’s section. The care taken with the shop lettering is reflected in the presentation of the books inside.

This example is found above a door of a warehouse on Dye House Lane, Lancaster.
The lettering is so faded that it’s very hard to make out the details, although the words MEAL &, in a serif seems visible.

A little bit of ephemera from Brucciani’s ice cream parlour in Morecambe. Built in 1939, it still retains much of its original Art Deco fixtures and furniture that includes wood wall panelling, red Formica tables and upholstered chairs, etched glass, mirrors and Deco clocks.
Location: Marine Road, Morecambe, UK.
This large sign is on the side of the Old Pier Bookshop, Morecambe. A wonderful place. After a while, the apparent chaos of books seemingly piled up with no design, gives way to order, and all sorts of gems can be found.
Location: Clarence Street, Morecambe, UK.
