  • I’ve been playing about with sections of the bottom picture, using digital filters and am convinced that the large sign on the shop reads “ROBIN HOOD”. It also seems to me that the top word of the banner on the trailer could be “JUVENILE”, with the word “HULK” below. Does that mean anything to anybody – were they depicting a shipwreck?

  • Further consideration suggests that the bottom word on banner could well be “HULA”, which would fit better into a carnival environment and the trailer looks like it might be decked in a South Seas theme.
