O'Meara Camping, Tottenham

At last we are reaching some decent temperatures and camping grounds can certainly expect to be quite full this weekend. I wonder how many campers will have purchased their equipment from O'Meara?

This Irish company has been in business since 1966. With only one shop in Dublin, they seem to rely essentially on mail orders. Did they have at some point more shops, including one at least in London? Or did a shop in Tottenham stock their products? If the ghost sign below was advertising a mail order business, I would have tought more information would have been provided.

Camping Ltd

Actually this sign hides partially another one, for a carpet company (maybe some people would want to lay a carpet inside their tent?):
There may be more digits for the phone number.

Until a few months ago, the extreme right part of this sign was hidden behind a billboard, hence the slight difference of tone on the white paint.
