Clutten, Swan & Co, New Cross

Printers' ghost signs, part 5 (Go to part 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7)

In another part of London, one of Pring & Rose's competitors used a more elaborate typeface, if not for its name, at least to describe the nature of its business to the passing public.

Clutten, Swan & Co.
Artistic Ticket-Writers

This sign was painted over an earlier one. I can't make out a name, but the business they were in is still clear:
Sanitry Engineers
Inspectors of General Repairs

Location: Amersham Road / Picture taken on: 23/07/2009
