Maestro Records, Mobiles Phone

Maestro Records, Mobiles Phone, 61 Rye Lane, Borough of Southwark, London SE15, 2010 • Poignant collision of old and new tech divided by a fat conductor, in a typically ruinous Peckham building. Note the mysterious non-Latin script “CAY” surtitle, also found here. Unexpectedly, Maestro (actually a reggae outlet, despite the classical pretensions) lived on and appeared to prosper, while Mobiles Phone became the also-interestingly-named Salem Beauty.

Silver and Edgington

Silver and Edgington, 18 Arwenack Street, Falmouth, Cornwall, 2010 • I caught Falmouth’s premier camping-cum-tailoring emporium just on its way out – wish I’d witnessed it in its tents-and-flags glory days (although maybe I did – I often visited Falmouth as a child). The sign’s black sobriety was soon replaced by the gaudy blobbiness of Kernow Toymaster.
