The Goodfather in Salford

We spotted another Godfather takeaway while out for a walk in Salford yesterday.

This one was missing a letter on its sign.

But had gained two letters to become Goodfather Pizza

Colne in Bloom

We recently had a nice wander around Colne in Lancashire and saw a number of planters out for Colne in Bloom.

This one in particular caught our eye!

We liked this one at Colne railway station as it had a nice train theme.

The Titanic Bed commemorated the ship and the band master Wallace Hartley who was born in Colne.

A funny old sign

NO TIPPING at the Stockport Pyramid.

While having a wander around the Stockport Pyramid I noticed a funny sign near the gates - it must've been up for years as it had the old Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council logo on it.

The other NO TIPPING sign on the opposite side of the driveway was spelt correctly.

Both signs are likely to be almost 30 years old. That's a long time for a typo like that to be hidden in plain sight!

The Metropolitan Borough of Stockport was founded in 1974 and the Stockport Pyramid was completed in 1992 after five years work.

Sadly traces of the old Metropolitan Borough of Stockport logo are becoming few and far between. There was one on an old noticeboard on Adswood Road in Cheadle Hulme until it was destroyed in a road traffic accident last year!

Thanks to Natalie Ainscough for letting me know about this sign with the old logo on at Woodford Recreation Ground.

A$$ bins in Billericay

Having a look through my photo archive I spotted this photo of some bins in Billericay.

Take a close look for the missing letters.

It reminded me of the 'recycling drive' in Luton a few years ago.

Please Keep Of The Flower Beds

Having read Viz comic for many years I always thought the correct way of saying it was 'Please Keep Off Of'.

Quasar in Great Yarmouth - Still Not Played

On our latest trip to Great Yarmouth we were unable to play the Quasar Laser Tag as the man at The Mint Amusement Arcade was unable to start the game up with only two players.

We also visited Great Yarmouth in June and didn't play then either, having missed the start of the game.

The neon Quasar sign has lost an 'A' since our last visit.

Go for 'broke' at Ladbrokes in Stevenage Old Town - Missing Letters Sign

This is probably the best sign 'fail' that I've spotted to date. It's brilliant.
