More shops and their signage

It seems these sort of coincidences come along in pairs. First you find one 'Cash Butcher' shop-front and then you spot other interesting and temporarily uncovered shop fronts all over the place. Like this one on Haydons Road, Merton which seems to be awaiting a new fascia. This is a tiled effort and as it's obviously never been a pub I can only assume that it was an off-licence at some time. CHARRINGTON'S is the name of the brewery that also presumably owned the premises. but as Charringtons actually merged with Bass Breweries in 1967 this building would have pre-dated such a merger. It's not all that ornate or particularly stunning in any way but still worth a picture or two, especially as the shopfront seems to be coming more and more bland as time goes on...
You can't really work out what the original shop front might have been, but undoubtedly it was a bit more attractive than the current effort.
It's a pity that the middle section was still covered but there you go...
And as a further comment on the Cash Butcher sign of a few weeks ago, I just found this on my wife's mobile phone. Taken in Molesy as the sun was going down last December and completely forgotten by us both, here's another example of a Cash Butcher. Poor quality I'm afraid and I wouldn't normally have posted it but then what are the chances of coming up with TWO cash butchers in just a few weeks?
