…”and something for the weekend sir?”

Six Word Saturday

I really like the old Dundee Courier building on Fleet Street, if it wasn’t for the lettering it would be quite an austere plain brick facade, but the typography lifts it and turns it into quite a warm looking building. It sits at number 186, the location of the fictional demon barber of Fleet Street Sweeney Todd, who lured his victims into his barbers chair and then subsequently slit their throats. Once the life was drained out of them Todd would dismember them and give the choicest cuts to his partner in crime Mrs Lovett, who used the source of cut price meat in the pies that she sold in her shop.
