“Proffessional Centre”

[Photograph by Michael Leddy.]

A piece of local signage, with what must be two British spellings. Yipes.

The typography is amateurish as well. The ff should be combined into a ligature.

That’d be an unbeatable combination of careful and careless. : )

Ugh. The combined pretension of using 'Centre' and then completely bollocksing professional. Exactly what you said, I guess.

Well, it's not quite as good as "Pubic Library," but it's definitely one of the great signs... In Pennsylvania, near the entrance to Presque Isle State Park, there is a business sign for a treatment center offering "Cancerology." It's not in the same class-- I *guess* it's not misspelled-- but still....

It's not just the lack of an ff ligature... the spacing overall is atrocious. My eyes! My eyes!
