“Why Go Bald”, Dublin sign on 1880’s book page
by Pat Byrne
Each page is approx. 275mm x 185mm 7.25 x 10.75inches
The sign advertises a hair and skin clinic just off South Great George’s Street in the city centre. It was about to be removed and dumped when a preservation group called to have it restored. In 1999 was switched on for the first time in five years
This sign is now a city landmark and was erected by Taylor Signs in 1961. The business has been in the same family for 48 years and according to the owners, the sign is appreciated by many famous Dubliners, including U2’s Bono, who said it was his favourite Dublin landmark
No two prints will ever be the same, the actual page you will receive may be different than that shown in the listing, but it will come from the same antique book.
It comes with a black A4 paper mount, so fits into an A4 size frame.
Frame is not included.
