Above the door to Coco Momo on Marylebone High Street you can still see the old pub name. Note the superfluous full stop.

The weather has been rubbish lately. What has happened to our Summer? July was almost a wash out. Now it's all muggy and uncomfortable. But it looks like the sun may be finally peeping through the clouds.

Bring me sunshine.

I love hunting out London's forgotten ghost signs. There's an old advert on a wall for Haringay baths in Finsbury Park that was re-done when the bath house was turned into flats. Looks less real authentic now.

I am assuming that you mean Hornsey Road Baths. For a while back there when they were working on the building I was convinced that they were never going to light the sign up again but it's back to its full glory now. Beautiful eh?
