Yates & Jackson – former Farmer’s Arms pub, Lancaster

Yates & Jackson

Yates & Jackson

A seldom noticed example of lettering from the city of Lancaster. This stained glass window in found in theback stairwell of a pub (formally the Farmer’s Arms and now called the Penny Street Bridge) on the corner of King Street and Aldcliffe Rd. The motif is of the firm, Yates and Jackson, who were one of the town’s earliest brewers. I think it may be the last remaining example of their name/initials to be found in the city.
