Lloyd & Son

Lloyd & Son, 42 Amwell Street, Borough of Islington, London EC1, 2004 High class dairy pictured open in 1978 here. From 2007-2012 it became organic grocery Unpackaged, who retained the frontage, albeit looking a bit worn; hopefully its beautiful signage will outlast the next occupants, too.

  1. This is fantastic, and the business that took it over are too. This is a really good example of how something old has been incorporated into something new and made timeless while retaining a sense of place. The best one so far on this site. Proper craft, a sign made with skill and love by someone who believes in what they are doing.
