Some more recent Denholms finds

I was so lucky to run across these old hand painted signs from Emil Grilli (see earlier post about Emil's work back-to-school-in-1964). These came from a Worcester Antique shop who's owners are related to Mr. Grilli.  I was able to acquire around 40 different signs from the store.  The original's shown below would have then been copied and placed throughout the store, or the appropriate department.  These were the days when all store signage was produced in house by hand.
 Below are a few highlights of my favorite images.
