Stroud, Dorchester

This ghost sign in the centre of Dorchester was relatively easy to read: it appears in a much better condition on a picture taken c 1950. However I haven't been able to establish when visitors to the county town of Dorset could enjoy some food at Stroud's dining rooms.


Although "Confectioner" appears on many ghost signs, "Restaurateur" is rather unusual.

On a more recent visit I noticed that the last two lines of this sign are now partly covered by an advert for The Thomas Hardy Explorer Tour.

Location: South Stret, Dorchester, Dorset / Picture taken on: 16/08/2009
