Historic signs - King's Cross coal offices

This from Eye's man on York Road...

After decades buried in undergrowth and shut off from public view, the Great Northern Railway's historic curved coal offices at King's Cross emerged from behind the hoardings this week – clearly viewable from a new public space in front of the redeveloped University of the Arts by the Regent's Canal.

Sharp eyed fans of railwayana will spot a BR Eastern Region enamel reading "Drive Slowly" on the wall.
As most of the others round here were knocked off years ago let's hope this solitary survivor doesn't get nicked!
