Signs in London, part 1

Some business signs in London, from Western Druggist magazine, March 1887:

I must give you a few selections from my note book of some of the business signs in London that struck me as curious. Several signs of artists draping the real figure, otherwise tailors, were noticed; then again another was ;’A professed trousers maker”; “Haberdashers,” “Publicans,” “Cheese-mongers” and “Iron-mongers” abounded. “Dealer in Job Horses,” “Dealer in Cat’s Meat,” and again “Purveyor of Asses Milk to Her Majesty.” … in another large store “Immovable Toothbrushes” were advertised.
