J. P. Bastos & Ca, Lisbon

Here is a rather modest sign, spotted while waiting for one of Lisbon's old tramways to arrive at its terminus on Rua da Alfândega. Paint manufacturer J. P. Bastos & Ca was founded more than 100 years ago. The company was known in Portugal for its Redlac brand of paints. In August 2007, J. P. Bastos was bought by one of its competitors, Argacol – Tintas e Vernizes, S.A.
