Aux caves des bouchers, Lille

Two different stores left their names on the façade of this building before 'Aux caves des bouchers' did the same but since the letters are all jumbled up, it is not possible to recognize anything more than just a couple here and there.

I have not found anything about 'Aux caves des bouchers', most certainly a wine merchant's shop, which simply took its name from the street it was in. Considering the blue colour for the background and the typeface used, this ghost sign may well date from the late 19th or early 20th century.
