Ghostsign – Hinton and Gunner, two Wembley pork and beef butchers

As you can see there have been two butchers at this location in Ealing Road – it's evident that one has been painted over the other. However they offered mainly the same thing:

It's impossible to get a straight-on shot of this sign so I have transformed it using Photoshop to attempt to make it more legible
The earlier blue sign is for R. Gunner – at top left: DAIRY FED PORK, and bottom right: ENGLISH SCOTCH MEAT. Clear, simple and to the point.
The subsequent black lettering for HINTON is now fading away and is more descriptive of the products available. I can make out (/ = line break): PURVEYORS / OF / SCOTCH BRITSH BEEF / GRASS FED [something] / DAIRY FED [pork?] / VARIETY OF COOKED MEATS / Families [?word] / or (?) [? next word].
Hints of a third sign at this site are also evident though no discernible letterforms remain.
If anyone has any archive images of this location, please do email them to me/send links or add them to this post's comments.
