Famous Amusements Emporium (JG’s)

Famous Amusements Emporium (JG’s), 3-9 Tontine Street, Folkestone, Kent, 2008 • Classic neon ghost sign on what was once the street’s oldest boot and shoe shop – there’s a photo of that here. By 2014 Folkestone’s Creative Quarter had replaced the Amusements sign with a tasteful painted wall ad for its services – call me a philistine, but I preferred it like this.
