Long Description:

The more obvious black on white ghost sign on the side of a building in High Street at Broadstairs reads;

CHILDS & SMITH / F.A.I. / CHARTERED AUCTIONEERS / & / ESTATE AGENTS

The F.A.I. stood for the Fellow of the Auctioneers Institute, now apparently defunct. Childs & Smith are shown in the 1913 Kelly's Directory at 9, Station gates, Broadstairs, Kent.

The second, more 'modern' advertisement painted over the CHILDS & SMITH advert in red reads;

WORSFOLD & HAYWARD.

They were also auctioneers and estate agents, but seem to be an older firm than Childs & Smith, being listed with offices in Dover as far back as 1881.
