Enhancing photo in order to read sign on Workshop Door
« on: Tuesday 13 February 18 14:29 GMT (UK) »
Hi folks

I wonder whether anyone could enhance this photograph enough for me to be able to read the sign above the workshop door?

I don't have the original, nor any way to re-scan - this is all I have, unfortunately.

Would anyone care to take up the challenge?!

Many thanks in anticipation.

Sorry, I can't work it out either. Have posted a couple of attempts, with large and small versions (sometimes you can see it better from further away). Perhaps from local knowledge and the few discernible letters someone might be able to work it out.
Cheers, Peter

When I first downloaded it and played with it, I thought it read The Freemasons Inn but it's a workshop  ???

Hi Whipby

Do you know who the people were? Is that a carriage to the right of the picture? Any idea what business it was?

Just giving you something to do why we continue to ponder!
