Talk to the hand

I love this sign. It’s got shades of Hanna-Barbera or Looney Tunes about it. Its remained on the front of that building through the many changes of tenant, pointing the way to redemption, with its oversized thumbnail, and elegant shirt cuff. Probably the best sign in Blackheath, (after the bridge weight sign of course).

The serif typeface around it appears to be Pompeii, which seems appropriate to the Roman Catholic Church…

    Divine indeed – though looked at squintingly it could be a shark devouring something fleshy.
