I was walking down Moore St on Friday and noticed the builders were working in 16 Moore St., home to one of my favourite shop signs in Dublin. I wondered what kind of work they were doing and more importantly would the shop sign remain intact? It would be a sad day if the iconic Plunket lettering were to disappear.
The building looks to be in a terrible state but the letters in the sign look fine and I began to think of other uses for the letters. Turn the premises into a club, & call it ‘Punk’.(as in my photoshop job above) or even “Funk”, if you could cut the bottom of the ‘E’ to make it an ‘F’. ‘Nuke’ is another. Might also be useful for anyone called Luke, Ken or Len. But Plunket is best.
