Vintage Sign Art: Thames Ditton Post Office


A 1912 postcard scene from Surrey, England, was our inspiration to celebrate the handpainted letter form. Municipal sign shops were once staffed with career signwriters and eager apprentices, and their unadorned works were hung throughout villages by the hundreds. The human hand brought warm personality to the most mundane of signs with nuances that can only be appreciated now that the golden age of the signwriter has passed. Original design.
