I was in Hunstanton with my family on Friday, saw this and thought of
I thought it would be ideal for your outside Ipswich section. On the
corner of Westgate Street and Church Street in Hunstanton there was (up
until recent months) a delightful little teashop/bakers/grocers called
'The Corner House'. Sadly it's now closed and the modern facade has
been removed to reveal this lovely period lettering. I expect it will
be covered up again soon so I thought I'd better take a snap.
As you can see it used to be C W Abbs, Tobacconist and
Confectioner. Cheers, Nigel Turner. (5.9.2017)'

This incised lettering, painted
gold against a brown background, compares with the Dickins tobacconist
signs in Cheltenham's "Cobbler's
Corner" at 202 High Street. Thanks to Nigel for the photographs.
