HA Howard & sons


A lovely old advertisement on the side of an apartment block, formerly a lead works, in Dulcie St. The company of HA Howard & Sons can be traced back to the 1940s. My further research indicates that Gileric were a label of their day, making dresses and tunics from the 1940s to the 1960s, possibly even earlier. Are any vintage clothes aficionados able to help me out here?

  4. Sorry, never heard of them, but fashion is not big on my list of things. I do love these old signs, I cannot think of one that I have seen here in Leeds.

  5. I have seen such painted signs myself - but they are rapidly beeing painted over - the explanation being that they are of 'no interest'.
    It's great in a way that you are acting as a kind of official recorder of these disapearing elements...

  8. I'm loving the fact that this sign isn't a ghost yet. Someone loved it enough to repaint it along the way. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
