2017: The building, newly renovated, sits empty.

Oct 2017 - present

Dainora Tamo Hair Studio


2017: Outside the front door, some beautiful old advertising remains painted on the wall.

This address has just been renovated and sits empty awaiting its next occupant. On the left side of the entrance way outside the door, an intriguing bit of ?Edwardian advertising can be seen painted on the wall. The words 'Tea' and 'Mineral' are visible. Oct 2017 a new sign is up "Dainora Tamo" and it looks like a hairdresser's.
