Shopping for shopfronts

A shop in Union Rd, Ascot Vale, makes use of the charming 19th century window design.

You can see the decorative style of this shop above the awning, rather spoilt by the drab appearance of the 20th century makeover below.  I don't know what they sell in this shop, and I don't want to know.  Wouldn't it be nice if shop owners/lessors paid some attention to the streetscape when tarting up the shop-front?  This old shop has had a reasonable restoration job done.
