Description

 

Several Canterbury buildings have wall writing.  Some are obviously commercial signs from the past; some are fading earlier street names; others seem to show the initials of earlier owners; some are dated and others not; for some we can guess the meanings whilst others are complete mysteries.  Do let us know if you have interpretations we have missed – use the side button to get in touch.
