Unfortunately, as I thought, the view from the street was partly obscured by the roof of the shop next door. Therefore the only way to get a picture of the whole sign was to get onto a double-decker bus. Obviously the first three buses that came were single-deckers. Then a 281 arrived but all the seats on the front row were taken. That meant another 8 minutes to wait. In the end another 281 with free seats by the front window appeared. By then I was the first one in the queue, and while a few elderly people slowly got on, I could take my photos. The dirty window and the vibrations from the bus didn't help to take a great picture but at least it was good enough to be able to read the lower part of the sign.
This is in fact a real palimpset, with three layers at least, and putting the different texts together isn't easy.
What seems to go definitely together is:
Then there is:
9. a.m. Til 8. p.m.
Day [or Bay]
Maybe I should have another look later. I'll keep you posted if I manage to get something else out of this sign.
