A. Hand & Sons, Salisbury

Several shops in Salisbury have superb tiled fronts but for now let's look at one with a painted signage.

The shop of A. Hand & Sons can be found south of the city centre, shortly after crossing the River Avon. I passed there in the evening, too late to go and ask if it was still being run by the Hand family.

Somehow the quality of the painting is better at both ends than for the shopkeeper's name.
