Spotted some old hand-lettered signs around the Barrow Market area, which seemed to have been cut down and recycled. The market is still in operation today, as is the ballroom venue ‘BARROWLAND,’ the amazing neon lights and rounded typeface still captures the excitement of the venue’s hey-day. It once operated as a dance hall in late 40’s 50’s. Today the sign still impresses, although it facade, needs of a touch up.
