Nostalgic Sign

nostalgic sign
This is a sign of shoes shop.
I found this old sign on a back street in central funabashi.
It is very simple and style of letters is old.
But it is tasty for me.
That shop has already closed.
Simple words and name are painted on the board.
"special shop for men and women's shoes; new make and repair"

Very interesting! I wonder how old that sign is. Such words would be so unusual here. It's great to see how common things are communicated differently in your country. Great post!!

Reminds me of the old signages we used to see here in Chinatown... Thanks for the wonderful post.

Sometimes old is good. Do they still repair shoes there?

The simple fact that they "repaired" the shoes show that the sign is old!I understand your nostalgy, when things were only efficient and simple..
