Re-use of the old shop name in Leek. The business just left up the name that was discovered behind a later facia. The original grocery business traded under this name from 1883 to 1961.

Cold War Warrior, Rhisiart Hincks have particularly liked this photo

Ja, aus dem Jahren hätte ich es wegen seiner Aufmachung auch geschätzt, ziemlich typische Aufmachung, finde ich.

A very familiar shop name in Leicester too. An old-fashioned grocery store, if I remember correctly, in the market place.

Excellent find; I have a soft spot for the old H & C, we had one open in a parade of shops built on a local estate in the 1950s. It had a wonderful spicy smell. It's long gone and you wouldn't go near those shops now in the evenings..
