Seventy years of errant punctuation!

Sadly Comino's Drapery closed last week after seventy year of service to the public.   It was there before the footpaths outside were paved, in a time when they were simply sand paths.

There has been much written in the local press, celebrating the natural conclusion to a much loved family business, but not one article questioned the punctuation of the sign above the door.

Sure in 1946 people were generally fastidious with their full stops and 'apostrophes.   Not so apparently.

Comino's Drapery was the major tenant in Comino's Building for all those years yet the answer to the question "C. E Comino's (WHAT?) & Co shall remain a secret for ever.
