Wonder what these notes say above the doors in the old picture?

Have to say, from an architectural point
of view, I much prefer the older photo.

The taller of the three storey buildings
seems to have suffered over time, the
roof line looks wrong and the arched
window has lost its appeal.

I have to agree with you Tony regarding the
old and the new photo.
