BURGER

I managed to catch a fast food restaurant façade in an imperfect, transitional state. It is only rarely that
the world’s leading corporations let themselves be seen in a condition other that clean and shiny. In any case
Spanish people are more relaxed with these issues which undoubtedly is an influential factor here.

NAPRA MONITORY WA

Filed under: Poland — Tags: , , — WoMe @ 12:17

At least a couple of decades have left their traces on this shop facade with the initial word on the
windows probably being simply ‘NAPRAWA’ –  which means  ‘repair’. Now it is a little bit difficult
to decipher the resulting clutter but lets try to trace the changes. Of the original typography the last
syllable ‘WA’ was probably lost together with the glass that carried it. Then, with time, the shop
might have shifted to newer technologies and the words ‘RTV’ (radio & tv), ‘MONITORY’ (monitors)
and ‘KOMPUTERY’ (computers) appeared. Two letters from the alphabet set of the former were used
to complete the original word ‘NAPRAWA’ and of the latter only ‘O TERY’ is left.

One of probably hundreds of custom made shop facades in downtown Madrid.
More such beautiful facades to come soon.
