Hunstanton, Norfolk

'Dear Borin,
I was in Hunstanton with my family on Friday, saw this and thought of you!
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)'

'CONFECTIONER    C.W. ABBS     TOBACCONIST'
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.
