Mark Spurgeon is collecting photos of old hand painted building signage on his site – Preserve. Most shots are from New Zealand and Australia so far, so if you have anymore, send them over »
Lots of great stuff on there, but I’m really taken by these massive numbers painted on doors above and below :)

I recognise the two lower photos from a regular “photo shoot” for my bikes! It is here in Christchurch New Zealand. I just love the old hand painted typography.
Here are some images of the same spot

Wow, these images are stunning. I love the simplicity of the letters against the bright colours. The distressed look adds character, too.
