What is This

I was put onto this by Barbie who noticed it whilst traveling down Prescot Rd on the Bus.
Anyone got any idea what the whole thing says and represents.....As can be seen the adjoining land is up for sale and will be redeveloped so this sign will then probably dissapear for ever




Barbie

Thanks Beeb, I wasn't sure when I could get there.
Well, I have no idea as to hat it could be, would have to look at old Kenny/Fairfield pics and see what the shop was.

I feel like nipping down there with a paint scraper,I'd soon have it off!Fascinating!!
Barbie

Just somehing to chip off the plaster Mojo....i am tempted too, I want a pic of it before it disappears!
Barbie

Bad news Beeb  Sad Just been on Google maps and it appears that we shall never know (unless old photos turn up)
That plaster is a second coating, the first one fell off also and took with it, or so it seems, the original wall and the whole advert.



Sad
MOJO

....s**t!!!! Mad  
                  It's (or was!) similar to the "Noblett's toffee" advert,in London rd,were there were plans to expose the whole sign,but it never materialised?!

Nice researching Barbie , so its gone for good ,, thats a shame. According to 1930 Kellys directory the Premises were  Gillespie Plumbers and 28 years later in 1958 it was still a Plumbers  business this time  as Gibson Plumbers. The vacant land next door apparently was  formerly The Fairfield Hotel. Presumably there must have been an alleyway or gap in the block otherwise this Gable end would not have been visible.

MOJO. that is another one that should be maintained as viewable.. I have looked at that one each time going past TJs ,but recently , say, in the last month or two, it has been completely painted over again.

As was...

Barbie

Damn!

There is another one visible up the swan on the gable end of an asian shop and they have pasted an advert over it!  Evil or Very Mad
