    I’ve been trying to visualise where that is. The cobbles and the double yellows remind me of Coatsworth Road but I can’t remember seeing the sign for Bensham Sofas unless it is a subsidiary of one of the many junk shops in that area like “Hardly Harrods”, “Trotters”, “Del Boys” and “Steptoe and Son”. In fact, I’ll have a guess that it belongs to my neighbour Geoff who runs Trotters Trading, without any pretence of an apostrophe, although he doesn’t seem to have many couches on display. Or should that be couche’s?

        Thanks, Les, it reminds me of a sign a saw in a shop window on Coatsworth Road the other day. It was headed “Manuel Labour” and I had visions of someone looking for work in a small, eccentric hotel in Torquay. Sadly, it had disappeared before I got the chance to get back and get a shot of it.
