P.C. Royce

P.C. Royce, 21 Hackney Road, Borough of Hackney, London E2, 2015 • There’s two layers of sign here. ‘Baker &’ it says at the left of the newer logo, so the right end of the sign must have been cut off. Most recently it was Cinnamon coffee shop.

  1. Could it be that there are 3 versions here? Top layer says C P Royce. The ‘Baker &’ may once have had a name in the middle and ‘confectioner’ on the right. Underneath this is an even older sign, to which I can’t make anything out. Just a thought.

    • A possibility, but then I wonder what was in the gap before PC Royce – it isn’t centred on the board, which is what males makes me think the right end got chopped off.

      • My mischievous side thinks the words ‘Rolls’….. That would fit in with the name? Seriously, I think you’re right. I guess Mr Royce moved at some point and wanted to take his lovely (and probably quite expensive) sign, with him?
