House signs on Ham Common

I have walked past these house signs hundreds of times and they have become so familiar that I almost fail to notice them now. Almost.

St. Michael's Convent is on the move so this sign's days are somewhat numbered; all the more reason for recording it here. I will miss it for both its quirky font and unusual colour.

The Avenue Lodge sign is more traditional and is showing signs of its age. It is placed in the wall facing onto Ham Common, which is nowhere near the entrance. Perhaps there is a story in that as I would have expected an entrance to be there.
