RIP: Signwriters – Gilding & Pictorial Artists


This beautiful gilded script once marked the home of Ambridge Signs. When they left the premises the sign didn’t come with them and, until last month, it provided a reminder of the area’s signwriting heritage. It was situated on this unassuming building at the end of a terrace on Southgate Road, De Beauvoir, but has now been removed. Another fading fascia bites the dust, this time a rare sign for a signwriting firm. RIP.
