E. Watson & Son & Daughter, The Joiners Arms

E. Watson & Son & Daughter, The Joiners Arms, 120 & 116-118 Hackney Road, Borough of Tower Hamlets, London E2, 2006 • Precise progeny in naive traditional lettering. Given the 0207 phone number the sign is more recent than it looks, despite the ancient weird funnel contraption on the roof (see bottom pic). It later became Ray’s Frames, and the Joiners Arms closed down, with the tiled tools plaque gouged out.
