    about all that's visible is them saying they are going to work with the spitalfields trust to resolve things.

    I walked past tonight and although I do hear the whole "London/everywhere is always changing" argument when you put this in context with the tea room next door.....they could have made an effort.

    The Pho place 2 doors up kept it muted and the other place at the end looks in context of the row.

    Can't remember who the bright white one is but they've been there a while with no angry reactions I am aware of. Probably already modernised.

    To my mind they could have saved themselves all this trouble by putting signs over the original front both top and bottom. This way the original front would have been preserved but a more modern look would have been possible.

    Painting the frontage such a garish colour made it obvious that they'd changed things, and done so in what appears to be blatant disregard of the overall esthetic of the shop and its history.

    They could have saved themselves a lot of grief by being more empathetic.
