I think this is a magnificent sign, not only because of its size, but also because of the variety in its lettering and the lovely phrase (or brand name?) “electrine candles”. I can’t decipher all the words though. It appears the white writing has been painted over top of the blue. Here is my best attempt so far:

VELVET SOAP

99/100

PERCENT

PURE

ELECTRINE

CANDLES.

I can’t decipher the words in white paint. Perhaps the second of them is “DRAPER”? There may be more words in blue/purple running along the bottom, but I am not sure.

This building has looked locked and unused for as long as I have noticed it (about a year), but is clean and tidy apart from a few cobwebs.

My interpretation of the wording is:

LICENSED M.M.B.W.
W.g. Pearce PLUMBER
PHONE FF 1666
BELLAIR ST.
KENSINGTON
Estimates given

I love the old phone number format! See below for images of the wider sign and the complete building facing the early morning light. At this time of year, leafy trees shade the sign throughout the day.
