Today's Reminders of the Past...Overblown Advert That Won't Go Away

Almond Printers of Felling High Street published this magazine in 1949 carrying this item

The Planning Committee think that the large advertisement for "Lochside Ales" painted on the gable end of the off-license shop in Davidson Street, undesirable, and are taking steps to see if it can be removed.
66 years have elapsed since then and these are photos of that gable end taken yesterday
Lochside Ales
Supplied By

can still be clearly...OK, obscurely... seen

Should the new owners of this house brighten up this gable end with fresh paint or should they leave this little bit of local history for a little while longer
Paint it...24,000 days of enjoyment is long enough
