Walking round towns and villages in England it is possible to spot signs and plaques erected by various organisations with an interest in local history.
Sometimes they are too high or too weathered to be easily read. A photo may be enlarged to help decipher the writing on the wall.
My photos are all from Cumbria and taken using my phone.
The plaque commemorating the popular children’s broadcaster known as Romany was unveiled by Terry Waite, CBE.
GALE MANSION Built by William Gale In the 1730s as merchant traders the family had strong links with the Virginian tobacco trade. William Gale was the brother-in law of Mildred Washington, the grandmother of George Washington, 1st President of the USA.
Cee’s photo is of a business behind railings. Windows feature strongly.
My photo was taken on my phone for a Twitter hashtag #FingerpostFriday. I wasn’t satisfied with it for that purpose, but it does include several of the same features as Cee’s photo including notices with lettering. You have seen it here first!
