  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?
