About this item

The Sunday Dispatch was a British newspaper, first published in 1801. It was renamed the Sunday Dispatch in 1928 and ran until 1961 when it was merged with the Sunday Express.
This enamel sign is a nice, heavy, early example - likely to date from the 1930s/40s. The typeface, colour scheme and captioning are excellent - very 'of the period'.
Condition wise, the sign does have areas of enamel loss and corrosion across the surface, especially the lower right corner. The middle two screw holes (left and right side) still have the stubs of the fixing bolts in place, these have been ground down, there are a number of good, sound screw holes to allow the sign to be mounted. Despite some defects, the main areas are good and readable, the colours are bright and the enamel retains a good shine.
The sign is 51cm wide, 76cm high and around 2mm thick.
