Historic Cumbrian Toll Bridge Sign
Weathered, Painted and Signwritten Boarded Pine Panel
English Lake District c. 1870
48.5” high x 57.5” wide
Provenance: A most unusual survival, this hand painted Signboard lists the charges payable for the various forms of transport wishing to cross a Lake District Toll Bridge. In untouched original condition, it is both a magnificent example of graphic Folk Art and a delightful peice of social history.
