Praying I am making the right decision on the stained glass design. I know the Northumberland coat of arms does not do Shirley house any justice but it's so hard to make a decision that could be around a very long time! #rescuingthewhitehouse #artdecoreno #artdecouk #artdecohome if anyone has input in another direction I would be very happy to hear it, ❀️

Cool Art Deco flats I can across in Wanstead London. Bit embarrassed I didn't know this was here. But any Deco is a great find #artdeco #artdecouk #sheltonmiranda #london #essex

Once the departure lounge and control tower for Farnborough airport, this listed Art Deco building is now a part of the Farnborough Business Park #farnborough #airport #aviation #artdeco #artdecouk

Greggs (Leyton): This and the Iceland round the corner were originally a giant art deco Woolworths branch, until they went bust β€’ 857 High Road, Leyton, Borough of Waltham Forest, London E10, 2016. #shopfront #storefront #shopfronts #shopfrontuk #shopfrontelegy #oldsign #signporn #sign #signs #signage #signboard #jj_texttypographical #tv_typography #foundtypography #grime_lords #detailsofdecay #rottenfeed #wallfilth #filthyfacades #ArtDecoUk #artdeco #decoarchitecture #architecture #tiles #tilesandtype

Edmund Martin Ltd: Dating from the 1900s, this was modernised in the 1930s but kept its old tripe-cooling interior. It was demolished in 2010, but lives on in my new book Shopfront Elegy: Sampler (available on Amazon, see link in bio) β€’ 3 Lindsey Street, Smithfield, City of London, EC1, 2004. #shopfront #storefront #shopfronts #shopfrontuk #shopfrontelegy #oldsign #signporn #sign #signs #signage #signboard #jj_texttypographical #tv_typography #foundtypography #grime_lords #detailsofdecay #rottenfeed #wallfilth #filthyfacades #ArtDecoUk #artdeco #decoarchitecture #architecture #tiles #tilesandtype #ghostsign

The #Plaza cinema in #Dorchester opened in 1933 with a screening of King Kong. Built in #artdeco style during the #goldenageofcinema, some of the screens still retain their Art Deco ceiling lights which were restored following a Β£500,000 refurbishment in 2015. #interwar #1930s

In Brighton! Sadly I can't find anything out about this lovely block of flats called Regent House near the Royal Pavilion. I'm guessing 1930s due to the Art Deco touches such as the flat roof, interesting angles created with the windows and brick work, the reliefs (not not in a typical Deco style), the black lacquer and my favourite part the etched glass panels reminiscent of Lalique. I believe this is Hermes depicted in the glass pane? They've packed a lot of details in to this one building. The one opposite was also quite lovely, but like many buildings in Brighton today was covered in scaffolding - lots of maintenance going on clearly

Collins & Jervie: There are some interesting modernist houses around Amersham, so I hoped the town centre would have lots of old shop signs - but this was the only one I found β€’ 32 Sycamore Road, Amersham, Buckinghamshire. #shopfront #storefront #shopfronts #shopfrontuk #shopfrontelegy #oldsign #signporn #sign #signs #signage #signboard #jj_texttypographical #tv_typography #foundtypography #grime_lords #detailsofdecay #rottenfeed #wallfilth #filthyfacades #ArtDecoUk #artdeco #decoarchitecture #architecture

Lina Stores: Famous Italian deli, established in 1944 and largely unchanged from the era when Soho was the only place in England with such exotica. Who knows, post-Brexit that day may come once again β€’ 18 Brewer Street, City of Westminster, London W1, 2002. #shopfront #storefront #shopfronts #shopfrontuk #shopfrontelegy #oldsign #signporn #sign #signs #signage #signboard #jj_texttypographical #tv_typography #foundtypography #grime_lords #detailsofdecay #rottenfeed #wallfilth #filthyfacades #ArtDecoUk #artdeco #decoarchitecture #architecture #tiles
