Strong's, Lymington

Half of the ghost sign painted across the façade of this cottage, one of pair built in the early 19th century, has disappeared, making it very difficult to identify Strong's activity.

Stong's Rom... ...s

Regarding the part of the ghost sign describing Strong's business, part of the third letter has faded but it looks like a 'M'. The following letter has completely disappeared but after that there seems to be the upper part of a 'E'. If that were the case, the only fitting word is 'rompers.' Was Strong a specialist in young children's clothing?

Location: Belmore Lane, Lymington, Hampshire / Picture taken in October 2009

Presumably unrelated to Stoke Newington's Strong's?
