Typography on Food Shops in Gravesend

I’ve only lived in Gravesend for three and half years and one of the first things I’ve noticed about the typography being used is stores use a lot of sans serif. The stores have been here for a long time. The pizzeria seems to use three type families which seems a bit overkill. The bakery on the other hand uses sans serif for their signs. It’s interesting seeing newer type families on stores that have been here before I was born.

    Amanda, what do you feel the fonts say about the neighborhood?
