Signboards of Old London Shops Summary


Signboards of Old London Shops by Sir Ambrose Heal

In this work the author surveyed a representation of traditional London shop-signs which figured upon billheads and trade-cards and which were identifiable by specimens in his own collection. The selection has provided records of some 2000 examples distributed over 150 trades. These reminders of the shop-keepers, their signs and addresses, bring to light the names and associations of many streets and byways in old London which have long since been swept out of existence. In order that this survey should be as authentic as possible the illustrations are derived from engravings actually employed by the shopkeepers themselves.
