“Christmas Opening Times” – photoset

Originally uploaded by ikj

Inspired by a nice ‘we’ll be closed’ sign in Tossed on Baker Street just before Christmas I spent some wandering time looking at how shops signal their opening/closed times to customers over Christmas.

This photoset is a selection of snaps from time wandering in Shoreditch, Brick Lane, Spitalfields and Columbia Road.

This one from Nelly Duff is my favourite, but Square Pie comes a close second imho.


Sigh – maybe it’s ironic? Or a graphic designer’s claim that an apostrophe can live above a random letter?

Apostrophe is more like ‘Nopostrophe’ with their season’s greetings…
