Vintage Signs

A history of signs past.


Traditional sign writing is becoming a rare talent and trade these days. The computor age has changed how we view, see and produce signs and signage.


Technology has determined the traditional sign writers future and we now rarely see the sight of a man or woman with a rest stick, brushes and paint pallet climbing a ladder to mark out a shop front prior to sign writing.

In years gone by the art of sign writing was a skillful and sometimes danderous trade! We hope you enjoy browsing these quirky and interesting photos...
