Brilliant - I've been saving some of these up for a post - but they arent as good as yours!

The Clever Pup said...

These are hilarious. The pea-thingy is so funny and so English

willow said...

My favorite is the "this is not a brothel" plaque.

Lynne said...

These were all great Letty! Makes you wonder why they had to put up a sign telling everyone it was not a brothel, doesn't it?

My fav is the Youth Drop-In. Too funny.

Leah said...

Amazing signs, and I too am intrigued by the insistence of the "this is not a brothel" sign...

Roy said...

What a great collection of signs! I love the "This is not a brothel" sign. And do we have any idea what the "Pea thingy" is?

Wendy said...

Yum. Now I want fish and chips with mushy peas and vinegar - but not the pea thingy, (which is a deep fried, battered type of pea fritter/ball.)

Betsy said...

Pea Thingy is probably just needs a new name! ha!

Harnett-Hargrove said...

Signage WIN!
I'm considering posting a sign saying Queen's Entrance on my front door.

I did smile at these. You have a great eye Lettuce.

Baino said...

All the funnier because they're real! Love the Grumpy Hour and No prostitutes. Seriously, I have a friend who's house used to be a brothel and she still has punters knocking at the door! I should recommend a similar sign!
