Co-operative Society, Bridge Road, Lancaster


Another of the lovely emblematic plaques of the Co-operative Society in Lancaster. This one from 1904 is located at the top of Bridge Road in what was formally a corner shop. L&S on the scrollwork refers to the Lancaster and Skerton branch of the Society. Skerton, found just north of the River Lune on which the city is located, was once a separate hamlet. I particularly love the bee cut into the base of the hive and the interwoven numerals.

Location: Bridge Road, Lancaster, UK
