Anglepoise, what else! My relationship with Anglepoise lamps started nearly three decades ago — I was a regular at the Camden market’s second-hand stalls. Robin [Kinross] surely still remembers my very predictable itinerary, which was usually either starting or ending at the then Hyphen Press home. I now own several of these lamps, from the wonderfully dependable classic models - refurbished over and over again - to the newer models. Corina jokes I can open my own [small] Anglepoise museum. That’s probably true. But what is also true, the Anglepoise lamps (I have) never behaved as museum pieces (even the Kenneth Grange series not), be they on my analogue-tools desk or above my computer screens. Instead, they followed me to all and every home I moved into, as a good old friend that’s been around for quite as long as I can remember. #OldType #NewType #AnglepoiseLamp #SlowLight #GoodLight #FormFollowsFunction #DesignWithinReach #fredsmeijers #corinacotorobai

Typisk omslag fra slut-1880’erne, med ornamentering og centreret layout. Dog langt fra så ornamenteret som så mange andre fra perioden. »Fra vore fædres tid« af J. Davidsen med illustrationer af Knud Gamborg, Gyldendalske Boghandels Forlag, trykt af J. Jørgensen & Co, 1884. #danishtype #danishdesign #madeindenmark #oldtype #retroads #vintageadvertising #vintagead #vintagefinds #ilovevintage #vintageads #danskbogdesign #danishbookdesign

A 'striking' old enamel sign spotted among the back streets of Tring. I'm guessing this is a good fifty years old at least and it's great to see that the colours have stayed so vibrant. Love that careful use of spacing on the word 'forbidden' too. . . . #type #typography #typespotting #typeinthecity #oldtype #oldsigns #urbantype #urbantypography #urbantyping #urbanlettering #foundtype #foundtypography   #streettypography #streettype #streetsigns #letters #lettering #signs #signage #signhunting #ghostsign #ghostsigns #ghostsignsuk #enamelsigns #hertfordshire #herts #tring #wallporn #enamel #walls

Fantastic ghost sign spotted near the Žižkov tunnel in Prague. Love the variety of styles here and the use of drop shadows - it's amazing how well preserved it all is. Unusually, the sign looks as though it might once have been inside a building due to the outline of a former roof line on the wall. Either way, it is likely to be covered up again soon as building works were taking place on the site when I visited. If any Czech friends can translate the sign the I'd be very grateful! . . . . . . #type #typography #typespotting #typeinthecity #oldtype #oldsigns #urbantype #urbantypography #urbantyping #urbanlettering #foundtype #foundtypography   #streettypography #streettype #streetsigns #letters #lettering #signs #signage #signhunting #ghostsign #ghostsigns #ghostsignsuk #paintedsigns #prague #zizkov #zizkovtunnel #wallporn #alwayshandpaint #walls

Ultra sophisticated stained glass lettering spotted on a midnight wander near the railway station in Prague. I have no idea who the building belongs to but the glass work looked original. Deco-era maybe? Either way I love the crisp and contemporary style! . . . #glass #stainedglass #stainedglasswindow #windows #glassworks #window #type #typography #typespotting #typeinthecity #oldtype #oldsigns #urbantype #urbantypography #urbantyping #urbanlettering #foundtype #foundtypography #streettype #details #graphics #letters #lettering #shopfront #zizkov #praha #prague

A selection of manhole covers from Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic. Karlovy Vary is nestled in the hills in the north west corner of the country. Famous as a spa town for centuries, visitors still come from all over the world to benefit from the curative power of its many hot springs, not to mention its strong supply of liqueur, wine and beer! . . . #coalhole #coalholes #coalplate #manhole #manholes #manholecovers #coalholecover #type #typography #typespotting #typeinthecity #oldtype #oldsigns #urbantype #urbantypography #urbantyping #urbanlettering #foundtype #foundtypography #streettype #pattern #texture #letters #lettering #underfoot #lookdown #pavements #ihavethisthingwithfloors #karlovyvary #czechrepublic

Back of Wood Street Children’s Mission. Swipe right for a photo of children queuing for the soup kitchen circa 1900. The mission was established by a Methodist minister named Alfred Alsop in 1869, and moved to its current home in 1873. The aim of the mission was to provide spiritual and material support to children and families living in the appalling poverty and slums of Deansgate and Salford. The charity dispensed clothes and food, as well as toys at Christmas. It also took children on holidays to the coast and nearby Peak District. At various points the mission also housed homeless children and adults. The mission still operates today after a century and a half by providing for locals in need. The basement is currently occupied by @thegaslamp which has dedicated a lot of space to photographs and information about the buildings‘s history.
