W.& J. Pye: Ghost Lettering, Lancaster

Pye Offices
Pye Offices

W. & J. Pye were suppliers of animal feed and other agricultural products. As well the offices on St. George’s Quay where this example is found, they also had a warehouse on Fleet Square (See the post on J. Bibby & Sons: http://acityofletters.wordpress.com/2013/11/20/j-bibby-sons/) with some adjoining wooden buildings that were demolished some years ago.

The letters – a slur serif (a serif with rounded ends) – look as if they have been (badly) overpainted on more than one occasion.

Location: St. George’s Quay, Lancaster,  UK.
