319—321 Gray’s Inn Rd

Painted house numbers and advertisement, presumably dating from the late nineteenth century. These have a wonderful disregard for the building – look at the way they run over the first floor window arcading – hard to imagine that many shops and buildings must once have been painted this way. What a shame the present owners don’t repaint them regardless of the building’s current use.
