London photo of the day: legacy billboard

I love these old ads that’ve been left where they fell, so to speak. This one, apparently for gentlemen’s evening wear, is in Soho. Closeups on the advertisment itself:

I can’t say there’s really a lot of ambiance. But I’m always on the lookout for good photos.

One of the things I like about that era is that people expected their businesses and buildings to last. So they put up a painted sign like that rather than a cheap tin-plate thing that could be unbolted and thrown away later.
