More painted adverts

With the recent demise of the Star painted advert (the scaffolding is down now to reveal an ugly, plastered but not painted,wall), I felt I had better capture the other two adverts in the vicinity before they disappear too! I don't know why Whitton's wrapped bread was any better than any other, but they must have thought it merited this fabulous advert. I particularly like the way the colours echo the brickwork on the house, or shop as it once was.
This advert is a little worse for wear, but still shows the vestiges of colour. It looks as though it was painted over another one, because you can see ghostly outlines of other letters. Warwicks Ltd of Newark... these adverts certainly conjure up another time.
