The Institute Pharmacy, Exmouth

This beautiful ghost sign reappeared only recently and I wonder whether more won't be uncovered in a near future.
Its design would suggest it was painted during the reign of Victoria but in the absence of any document mentioning this pharmacy it isn't possible to be more precise.

This is such a great ghost sign that I can't resist posting more pictures showing the elaborate lettering surrounded by Arabesques and other decorative patterns. The part on the pillar is particularly amazing and shows Gothic Revival influences.
