Unicoat House (Stalbridge Dry Cleaners)

Unicoat House (Stalbridge Dry Cleaners), 151 Granby Street, Leicester LE1, 2016 •  Golden Arts and Crafts lettering for a long-gone business competes with brash plastic signage below. It looks like the upper text was part of this early 20th century building from the start; and it will doubtless outlast the dry cleaner. The name suggests paints but may have been actual coats – records show the premises housed a tailor and outfitter’s in 1920 but I can’t find out much more.
