F.P. Turner & Sons (Five Star Nails)

F.P. Turner & Sons (Five Star Nails), 31 Victoria Road, Surbiton, Surrey, 2014 • An old sign kept on from a jeweller’s, established 1825 (though not at this premises, where they’d been for 15 years). F.P. Turner’s final days can be seen on Google street view here, at which point they were receiving very unflattering reviews. There’s an article about their 2013 closure here.
