carpathiantypefoundry A familiar sight on many roads in North Yorkshire are the cast iron mile markers installed by the former Yorkshire North Riding County Council. These were manufactured by F. Mattison & Co. Dedale, Yorkshire. Love the different typographic treatment of the two towns shown. These solid looking mile markers are in fact hollow and bear the makers name impressed on the inside. #milemarker #castironsign #castironroadsign #northyorkshire #northyorkmoors #thenorthyorkmoors #thenorthyorkshiremoors #suttonbank #ruraltypography #typography 1mon

anotherdaycalling This is the railway station sign from the Dr. Beeching casualty in the 1960's, Wheatley station in Oxfordshire. Wheatley also had a girls school unto which Teresa Brasier went, who is she I hear you ask, she is now, probably the most powerful woman in the UK, the Home Secretary Teresa May ! #Wheatley #BeechingCuts #HomeSecretary #TeresaBrasier #TeresaMay #StationSign #Oxfordshire #DidcotOxfordshire #DidcotRailwayCentre #ClosedStation #DrBeeching #castIron #CastIronSign 2mon

carpathiantypefoundry T Anderson MD. Beautiful cast iron ghost sign lovingly maintained in York City centre. The doctor might be long gone but the name remains immortalised in some beautiful typography. The N is particularly unusual. Love the flourishes. #yorkcity #york #ghostsign #castironwork #castironsign #typography #carpathianontour #yorkshire 3mon
