When i bought my house i used a firm of solicitors called, "Sanders, Locker & Parrish" it was 50yrs ago and their name still rolls of my tongue there must be others such as "Alldays & Onions", any others out there?. Len.

There used to be an estate agents in, I think, Kidderminster called 'Dolittle and Dalley'!


How about the Carpet Fitter in Brierley Hill 'Walter Wall'.

In Leeds, not Birmingham, but I think this is one of the best, even if it is a blatant lie. This was taken 3 years ago. It looked even better about 5 years before, when the size ands styling of all the lettering was almost the same, and so it looked like a sentence.



I have seen a womans hairdressers recently named 'CURL-UP and DYE'. I know its in Brum but I cant think where.
