I took this picture when we were on holiday in Northumberland; this is from our visit to Berwick.
I loved the really interesting old building. I don’t know a great deal about architecture, but it’s easy to see that a lot of care and thought went into designing this – and that it would have been a stunning shop entrance at one time.
I tried to research it a little afterwards, and it seems that the missing letter is a J.
The shop was – I think – a hardware store, and prints in one of the windows show that the plan is to turn it into a Pizza Express.
(This photograph is part of my 365 Project. You can read more about that here).

Oh, joy. Pizza Express. I hate gentrification like this. There is so much of it where I live that they coined a new term “gentriconfrontation” – when gentrifiers meet old-schoolers.
Love that old building…hope they restore rather than destroy its fine features.
