The Imperial Arcade

The Western Road and Dyke Road entrances to the 1930's Imperial Arcade once had elegant canopies with wrought-metal lettering incorporated into their fabric. The present tawdry painted signs, in a cramped modern, almost graffiti-like, style make no reference to the Art Deco period: indeed, seem to devalue the elegant facade while serving little practical purpose.
