Tiles and doorways One & Two Around Norfolk

These black and white doorways are all in Great Yarmouth in Norfolk. The first three are from domestic properties near to each other on Trafalgar Road., while the other two are from commercial buildings on Broad Row. There's quite a contrast between the condition of the two types. It's easy to see how these kinds of features could disappear into history as they reach a state where they need replacing.

Bliss's Bazaar

It looks like the name was deliberately defaced, perhaps when the shop changed hands. However, the one below is still Bretts shop, so perhaps the damage is just wear and tear.
