Doorway Mosaics – shops and pubs

I am always on the look out for signs of original shop or pub names.
Often I spot these hints of the past embedded in the masonry near the top of a building or on hand-painted signs.
The ones that cheer me the most are the often intricate floor mosaics that can be found in the entrances.
Only a few of these are actually still relevant to the business that sits above them today

  1. These pictures have brought back many memories. Cannot imagine many shops paying for mosaics these days. Well spotted.

  2. Yes, some of them are just gorgeous. I suspect there were specialised artisans for this kind of thing.
    Another collection of door mosaics will be posted soon.
