Goroke Garages: fire alarm sign

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I found this handsome old fire alarm sign at the back of the local garage – one of the few original details that hadn’t been stripped from the premises over the years. There is something about vintage advertising that appeals to many of us for various reasons; I enjoy the spare use of colour here, where the sign relies on old-style signwriting skills – rather than computer savvy – for impact.
