C. Hawkes, Leytonstone

Looking for low-priced furniture around Leytonstone? A few decades ago you might have been able to find something at C. Hawkes's. Nowadays the premises are occupied by an electrical appliance retailer.

Given the typeface used on the central part of this ghost sign, I would say it dates from the 1950s (but I may well be wrong). Its design is reminiscent of the one used on the bottom line of the London Co-op sign in Walthamstow.
