Old Wall sign ClactonThe Signs on the side of Sheen,s the estate agent was probably a café in the 1920′. There is a movement seeking to preserve the sign, lets hope they have better luck than with the Banksy sign which is lost unless someone restores it.

The posters, which advertised Ambrosia, Black Cat cigarettes and a local café, are on the side of a building currently occupied by Sheen’s Estate Agents. An employee there said “loads of people” had come to take pictures over the last few days once the signs had been exposed.
