Woollens Signs was founded in 1883, and is still in business today, although these premises have been closed and they have moved elsewhere.
A nice little relaxed explore was had and there were loads to see and have a sift through. Looking through the scale drawings and photos in the portfolio, it seems they have made a sign for almost everywhere you look. I did not realise tey were so big. It seems they had a big deal with Bass, for public house signage as theres loads of stuff for them. Sifting through the drawings brought back many memories of how Sheffield looked in the 80`s.

Anyhows heres the piccys.
