A Gentleman of Letters

Via Scamp, here’s a collection of photographs showing the work of Dublin signwriter Kevin Freeney, active from the 1930s to the ’80s.

Included is an In Dublin article on signwriters from 1978, a whiskey bottle reminiscent of The Small Back Room, and loads of signs, on vans, walls, pubs, shops, including a couple for Beshoff’s fishmongers. Beshoff? Yes, Beshoff.

The above photo is of Premier Cycles, Shop Street, Drogheda. Copyright © the estate of Kevin Freeney.
