Fuller, Smith & Turner: Chiswick Ales & Stouts 2

This new hand painted sign on the building housing the Union Tavern was sent to me by regular correspondent Ross Corben.  It is advertising the famous Fuller, Smith & Turner brewery from nearby Chiswick and has clearly been produced to have a dated look, in keeping with some of the ‘faux’ ghostsigns discussed previously.  It is a very well finished piece and obviously painted by a professional.  Does anyone know anything about the commissioning and production of the sign?

The sign can be found above the Union Tavern on Great Western Road, London, W9, close to Westbourne Park underground station.  The link will take you to the google streetview for the location which pre-dates the photo below.

[PS. If you happen to be in the area today and tomorrow (7th and 8th July 2012) then be sure to look out for fellow ghostsigns enthusiast Jane Parker at the Great Western Studios Summer Open, a weekender with events and stalls from over 100 artists and designers.  Suitable for children.]

    Somehow I missed this post when you originally wrote it. I saw this sign last October when I was walking to the Westbourne Park station. I didn’t realize that it was new/faux. I submitted a photo of it to the HAT archives a few days ago.

    • Yes, it does a good job of looking authentic, a ghostsign of tomorrow no doubt.
