It's an alternative phonetic alphabet that's on Blackpool Prom along with allsorts of comedy quotes from years gone by.
There's a few on there that I've never understood.

Thanks. You've solved a few there that I was struggling with.
'O for the garden' should have been ' O for the garden wall'. FCBurnley spotted it. Edited it now.

N for a dig - A play on the old phrase " Infra Dig " , meaning doing something that is beneath you .... from the Latin, " Infra Dignitatem ", meaning " beneath one's dignity " ....
