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.
