Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

I noticed this old shop sign on the shop just by Harringay Station. (Click 'View Full Size' below to enlarge).

I guess this must be the sign for its second incarnation, since this photo shows what must have been its first.

Hugh, just a fortnight ago I did my best to engage one of the current owners in a discussion of 'The WIGHTMAN Rd. STORES' sign, telling him that 'DAWES' must have been the previous proprietors. No spark of interest provoked, I'm afraid. What I really wanted to say was, 'When the hell are you going to do something about it, like restore it or obliterate it properly?' So much for my doughty efforts to protect his right-of-way through old Mr Durant's front vineyard.

Yeah, I remember taking in the picture of Dawes about 10 year ago. It was quickly evident that history's not his thaing!
