Based in Gloucester, Norville was founded more than a century ago. Since then the exterior of the practice seems to have changed relatively little. The façade still displays the lovely Edwardian fascia and a simple but effective painted sign can be seen on the side of the building. In spite of changes introduced over the years to telephone numbering, this sign was left untouched. Nowadays there are several Norville optician practices around Gloucestershire and in the Bristol area but I doubt they are as attractive as the original one.
