I was lucky to see these two old shops signs when they were uncovered during re-fits. The top four pictures show what is hidden at McDonald's 280 Holloway Road – W. B. Hallett, Fox & White, Auctioneers and Valuers. The bottom two pictures show that there was a shop called Davisons at 606 Holloway Road. I think I can also make out the word 'provisions' to the right.
